Organizing by Residents & Interns

House staff are predominantly joining the Committee of Interns and Residents (CIR), a local of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). CIR/SEIU claims to represent over 33,000 residents, interns, and fellows in more than 75 hospitals, covering approximately 20 percent of house staff in the U.S.

Union Organizing Campaigns by Residents and Interns

IRI believes the trend of unionizing will continue to grow in 2024, influenced by the National Labor Relations Board’s pro-union agenda and the enthusiasm of employees across various industries. Healthcare facilities should retain expert labor relations consultants to assess union vulnerability and develop preventive strategies.
