The Affordable Care Act includes provisions that would “destroy the very health and wellbeing of our members,” as stated in the recent joint letter from the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the United Food and Commercial Workers and UNITE HERE to Congressional leadership.
Learn about threats to the multi-employer plans called “Taft-Hartleys,” to union-won benefits being penalized in the ACA as “Cadillac plans,” and how labor is organizing locally and nationwide to fight back and to build the movement for real health-care justice, single payer Medicare for all.

Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) is a nonprofit organization of 19,000 physicians, medical students, and health professionals who support single-payer national health insurance. PNHP-NY Metro is one of over 40 chapters across the country.
- PNHP believes that access to high-quality health care is a right of all people and should be provided equitably as a public service rather than bought and sold as a commodity.
- PNHP educates physicians, other health workers, and the general public on the need for a comprehensive, high-quality, publicly-funded health care program, equitably-accessible to all residents of the United States.
- PNHP views this campaign as part of the campaign for social justice in the United States; opposing for-profit control, and especially corporate control, of the health system in favor of democratic control, public administration, and single-payer financing.
