Committee of Interns and Residents Wins Inclusion in NYS Healthcare Bonus Program

The Committee of Interns and Residents (CIR/SEIU) had a huge victory this week, securing their inclusion in the New York State Health Care Worker Bonus Program. Initially, Governor Hochul's planned COVID bonus for healthcare workers left out resident physicians and fellows, but CIR/SEIU members, who are on the COVID frontlines day in and day out, lobbied, spoke out, shared their stories, and otherwise took action to win the bonuses that belong to all healthcare workers.
