Message from the Executive Director

Dear Retired Members,

I don’t know about you, but I am so happy that the cold weather has ended and we can embrace the sunshine! The warmer weather makes it much easier for everyone to get out and become more active.

As we move toward the summer months, I’m reminded that we have been talking together for over a year now about our health journeys—and what a year it has been! It seems like just yesterday that we started this conversation and I have been so personally inspired to hear the stories shared by 1199ers—both retired members and those still on the job. Part of the reason I value this dialogue is because I believe it’s necessary to change the way we think about our health.

Lately, much of the conversation has turned to self-care and incorporating healthy habits as important parts of preventive healthcare. As 1199ers, we haven’t just been talking about it; we have been living it. Like many of you, my journey includes eating healthier foods, moving more, getting enough sleep and managing my stress levels. And most of us agree—it’s not always easy.

That’s why we’re all so much better off when we get involved and help one another. Here at the Benefit Funds, we’re supporting your efforts to reconnect by offering in-person classes and chapter meetings! Most will also be available via Zoom if you would rather join from home, so please take a moment to look at the schedule in this newsletter to find out more about these opportunities.

I remain convinced that staying connected and maintaining our health is the key to unlocking life’s joys, especially in retirement. In this issue, our “Healthy Living Spotlight” focuses on the importance of colorectal cancer screenings. Building a good relationship with your healthcare provider and having regular screenings is one of the most important things you can do to stay healthy and active.

Finally, I’m really excited to unveil that we now have our own 1199SEIU Benefit and Pension Funds YouTube channel. You can find out about this and so much more inside this Retired Members Bulletin, so I encourage you to check it out!

In good health,

Donna Rey, EdD

Un Mensaje de la Directora Ejecutiva

Estimados miembros jubilados:

No sé qué opinan ustedes, ¡pero yo estoy tan feliz de que el frío haya terminado y podamos sentir el calor del sol! El clima más cálido hace que sea mucho más fácil para todos salir y estar más activos.

A medida que nos acercamos a los meses de verano, recuerdo que hemos estado hablando durante más de un año sobre nuestros caminos hacia la salud, ¡y qué año pasó! Parece que fue ayer cuando comenzamos esta conversación, y, personalmente, me ha inspirado mucho escuchar las historias que compartieron los integrantes de 1199, tanto los afi liados jubilados como los que todavía trabajan. En parte, la razón por la que valoro esta conversación es porque considero que es necesario cambiar nuestro modo de pensar la salud.

Últimamente, la mayoría de las conversaciones se han centrado en el cuidado personal y la incorporación de hábitos saludables como partes importantes de la atención médica preventiva. Como integrantes de 1199, no solo hablamos de esto, sino que lo vivimos. Al igual que muchos de ustedes, mi camino incluye comer alimentos más saludables, moverme más, dormir lo suficiente y controlar los niveles de estrés. Y la mayoría de nosotros coincidimos: no siempre es fácil.

Es por eso que todos estamos mucho mejor cuando nos involucramos y nos ayudamos mutuamente. Aquí, en el Fondo de Benefi cios, apoyamos sus esfuerzos por reconectarse al ofrecerles clases presenciales y reuniones de agrupaciones. La mayoría de ellas también estarán disponibles por Zoom si prefi eren unirse desde casa. Así que tómense un momento para consultar los horarios en este boletín informativo y obtener más información sobre estas oportunidades.

Sigo convencida de que permanecer conectados y mantener nuestra salud es la clave para desbloquear las alegrías de la vida, sobre todo durante la jubilación. En esta edición de “Healthy Living Spotlight” (Vida saludable en primer plano) nos centramos en la importancia de los exámenes médicos para detectar el cáncer colorrectal. Tener una buena relación con su proveedor de atención médica y realizarse exámenes médicos con regularidad es una de las cosas más importantes que pueden hacer para mantenerse saludables y activos.

Finalmente, me emociona mucho revelarles que ahora tenemos nuestro propio canal de YouTube de los Fondos de Beneficios y Pensiones de 1199SEIU. Pueden encontrar más información sobre esto y mucho más en este Boletín para Miembros Jubilados (Retired Members Bulletin, RMB, por sus siglas en inglés); por eso, ¡les recomiendo que le echen un vistazo!

En buena salud,

Donna Rey, EdD

President’s Message
Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Spring greetings! Isn’t it amazing to witness the changing of the seasons? As I look out my window, I’m delighted to witness this period of renewal and change and can’t help but think of the ways nature is reflected in our lives. We never stop evolving, growing and taking on new challenges—and there is always time to reevaluate our healthy living goals and get back on track if we need to.

Our “Retired, but Active” community remains strong—due largely to the measures you take to protect your personal health and the health of your communities. Keeping an active mind is the key to sustaining your mental health and is more important than ever. The Retired Members Division offers many ways for you to engage—whether it’s taking an online exercise class or building a new skill set at one of our in-person classes at our Manhattan location, there really is something for everyone to enjoy.

Now is also a great time to schedule your annual checkup with your doctor, along with any preventive screenings that are due. Annual exams give you a clear picture of how you’re doing, help you manage ongoing conditions and give you a head start on treating new issues that may come up. Don’t let illness sneak up on you—schedule an appointment with your primary care doctor today.

As we emerge from another winter season, I hope you feel encouraged and excited by the spirit of renewal and take steps to protect your mind and body. Remember: together we’re stronger—reach out for assistance if you need it by calling (646) 473-8666 or (800) 575-7771 for those outside of New York.

In solidarity,
Mary Stovall-Merrill


Mensaje de la Presidenta

Queridos hermanos y hermanas:

¡Saludos primaverales! ¿No es asombroso poder presenciar el cambio de estaciones? Mientras miro por la ventana, me siento agradecida de ser testigo de este periodo de renovación y cambio, y no puedo evitar pensar en las formas en que la naturaleza se ve refl ejada en nuestras vidas. Nunca paramos de evolucionar, crecer y asumir nuevos desafíos, y siempre hay tiempo para reevaluar nuestros objetivos para llevar una vida saludable y retomar el rumbo si es necesario.

Nuestra comunidad “Jubilados, pero activos” sigue siendo fuerte, en gran parte gracias a las medidas que ustedes toman para proteger su salud individual y la de sus comunidades. Mantener la mente activa es la clave para preservar la salud mental, y esto es más importante que nunca. La División de Afiliados Jubilados ofrece muchas formas de participar, ya sea tomar una clase de ejercicio en línea o desarrollar un nuevo conjunto de habilidades en una de nuestras clases presenciales en nuestra sede de Manhattan, realmente hay opciones para que todos puedan disfrutar.

Este también es un buen momento para programar sus chequeos anuales con su médico y para que hagan los exámenes médicos preventivos necesarios. Los exámenes anuales les dan una idea clara de cómo se encuentran, les ayudan a controlar sus afecciones actuales y les dan ventaja con el tratamiento de nuevos problemas que puedan aparecer. No permitan que las enfermedades los tomen por sorpresa; programen una cita con su médico de atención primaria hoy mismo.

A medida que nos despedimos de otro invierno, espero que se sientan motivados y entusiasmados por el espíritu de renovación y que tomen medidas para proteger su mente y su cuerpo. Recuerden: juntos somos más fuertes. Si necesitan asistencia, solicítenla llamando al (646) 473-8666, o al (800) 575-7771 para quienes no se encuentran en Nueva York.

En solidaridad,
Mary Stovall-Merrill

Healthy Living Spotlight

Colonoscopies Can Save Lives!

Getting screened for colorectal cancer lets you know where you stand, and early detection gives you the opportunity to start treatment as soon as possible, which can be lifesaving. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends a colonoscopy every 10 years for adults ages 45 to 75, but there are other screening methods that can be done from the comfort of your home. If you have a personal or family history of cancer or have any symptoms of colorectal cancer (changes in bowel habits, fatigue and abdominal discomfort), it’s important that you get checked out as soon as possible.

To get started, call your primary care physician to schedule an appointment to discuss which colorectal cancer screening method is right for you.

George Gresham

President,
1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East

A Message From George Gresham
Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Although Juneteenth has been celebrated for 160 years—primarily by Black communities mainly in the South—it was finally recognized as a federal holiday in 2021 when President Joe Biden signed it into law.

More than a century and a half earlier, on September 22, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln announced that the Emancipation Proclamation would go into effect on January 1, 1863, promising freedom to enslaved people in all of the traitorous Confederate states, including Texas. Of course, the slaveholders were not about to voluntarily free those they held in bondage. So, enforcement of the Proclamation generally relied on the advance of Union troops. Texas, as the most remote state of the former Confederacy, had seen an expansion of slavery because the presence of Union troops was low.

It wasn’t until June 19, 1865—two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation and two months after the end of the Civil War—when U.S. Major General Gordon Granger and his troops arrived in Galveston that emancipation was proclaimed in Texas and the last of the enslaved were freed. The name Juneteenth is a mixing of the words “June” and “nineteenth” and celebrates the end of 250 years of slavery. Juneteenth has since been observed annually, often broadly celebrating African-American culture.

Early celebrations date back to 1866, at first involving church-centered community gatherings in the South. Those who came north and west in the Great Migration of the early 20th century brought these celebrations to the rest of the country. Beginning with Texas by proclamation in 1938, and by legislation in 1979, every U.S. state and the District of Columbia has formally recognized the holiday in some way.

The holiday is considered the longest-running African-American holiday and has been called America’s second Independence Day. Juneteenth celebrations historically have three goals: to celebrate, to educate and to agitate.

Early celebrations consisted of baseball, fishing, rodeos, street fairs, cookouts, family reunions, park parties, historical reenactments, blues festivals, voter registration and Miss Juneteenth contests. African-Americans were often prohibited from using public facilities for their celebrations, so they were often held at churches.

In our recently secured contract with the League of Voluntary Hospitals and Homes in New York, we won the addition of Juneteenth as a paid holiday for our members. This is a terrific achievement, but we have hundreds of other contracts in our hospitals, nursing homes and home care agencies from the Canadian border to Florida. And all of our sisters and brothers should enjoy a Juneteenth paid holiday the same as our members in New York’s League institutions and facilities. So, when contract renewal comes up next time—wherever and whenever it is—we will make that one of our demands. We are one union after all.

Meantime, I want to wish all of our 1199 family—especially you, our veteran members—a wonderful Juneteenth this year.

In solidarity,

George Gresham


Un Mensaje De George Gresham

Queridos hermanos y hermanas:

Les contaré algo que muchas personas no saben. El Día de la Liberación, oficialmente conocido como el Día de la Independencia Nacional (Juneteenth), es un día feriado federal en los Estados Unidos. Se celebra el 19 de junio todos los años para conmemorar el fin de la esclavitud.

Se considera el día feriado afroamericano más antiguo y también se lo ha llamado el segundo Día de la Independencia de los Estados Unidos. Las celebraciones del Día de la Liberación tienen, históricamente, tres objetivos: conmemorar, concientizar e inquietar.

Aunque el Día de la Liberación se conmemora hace 160 años, principalmente por parte de las comunidades negras y en el sur, finalmente fue reconocido como día feriado federal en 2021, cuando el presidente Joe Biden lo promulgó. Más de un siglo y medio antes, el 22 de septiembre de 1862, el presidente Abraham Lincoln anunció que la Proclamación de Emancipación entraría en vigor el 1 de enero de 1863, en la que se prometía libertad a los pueblos esclavizados en todos los estados confederados traidores, incluido Texas. Por supuesto, los esclavistas no estaban dispuestos a liberar voluntariamente a aquellos que mantenían en esclavitud. Por este motivo, el cumplimiento de la Proclamación dependía generalmente del avance de las tropas de la Unión. Texas, el estado más remoto de la antigua Confederación, había experimentado una expansión de la esclavitud porque la presencia de las tropas de la Unión era baja.

No fue hasta el 19 de junio de 1865, dos años y medio después de la Proclamación de Emancipación y dos meses después del final de la Guerra Civil, cuando el mayor general estadounidense Gordon Granger y sus tropas llegaron a Galveston, que se proclamó la emancipación en Texas y los últimos esclavos fueron liberados. El nombre que este día de conmemoración recibe en inglés, “Juneteenth”, es una mezcla de las palabras “June” (junio) y “nineteenth” (decimonoveno) y homenajea el fin de 250 años de esclavitud. Desde entonces, el Día de la Liberación se celebra todos los años y, a menudo, también se homenajea, a grandes rasgos, la cultura afroamericana.

Las primeras celebraciones se remontan a 1866 y, al principio, involucraban reuniones comunitarias centradas en iglesias en el sur. Quienes llegaron al norte y al oeste durante la Gran Migración de principios del siglo XX llevaron estas celebraciones al resto del país. En un principio, con la proclamación de Texas en 1938 y como ley en 1979, todos los estados de los EE. UU. y el Distrito de Columbia han reconocido formalmente el día feriado de alguna manera. Las primeras celebraciones constaron de béisbol, pesca, rodeos, ferias callejeras, comidas al aire libre, reuniones familiares, fiestas en los parques, recreaciones históricas, festivales de blues, inscripción de votantes y concursos de Miss Juneteenth (señorita del Día de la Liberación). A menudo, a los afroamericanos se les prohibía utilizar las instalaciones públicas para sus celebraciones, por lo que solían hacerlas en iglesias.

Se considera el día feriado afroamericano más antiguo y también se lo ha llamado el segundo Día de la Independencia de los Estados Unidos. Las celebraciones del Día de la Liberación tienen, históricamente, tres objetivos: conmemorar, concientizar e inquietar.

En el contrato que firmamos recientemente con la Liga de Hogares y Hospitales Voluntarios de Nueva York, obtuvimos la incorporación del Día de la Liberación como día feriado pagado para nuestros afiliados. Este es un gran logro, pero tenemos cientos de otros contratos en nuestros hospitales, residencias para personas mayores y agencias de cuidados en el hogar, desde la frontera canadiense hasta Florida. Todos nuestros hermanos y hermanas deberían poder disfrutar de un día feriado pagado por el Día de la Liberación, al igual que nuestros afiliados en las instituciones e instalaciones de la Liga de Nueva York. Entonces, cuando llegue la próxima renovación de contratos, donde sea y cuando sea, haremos que esto sea una de nuestras exigencias. Después de todo, somos un sindicato.

Mientras tanto, quiero desearle a toda nuestra familia de 1199, especialmente a ustedes, nuestros afiliados veteranos, un maravilloso Día de la Liberación este año.

En solidaridad,

George Gresham
