DC37's Professional & Healthcare Division

Tele: 212 815 1940

DC37's Council Representatives are themselves organized into "Divisions" to facilitate representation for our Local 768 members, along with the many thousands of other DC37 members in related jobs outside of Local 768's membership. For the past few years, Local 768 has been assigned Council Representatives in the Professional and Healthcare Division, which also represents members of Local 420 (Municipal Hospitals Employees), Local 436 (Nurses and Epidemiologists), Local 1189 (Psychologists), Local 3005 (DOH Technical Employees) and Local 3778 (NYPD Technical Professional Employees).

Each Council Representative is assigned to represent Local 768 members based on agency, work location or pay station, as listed below (if no phone number is listed, contact them through the Division at 212-815-1940).

PLEASE NOTE: Our goal as a Local is that most routine concerns are initially reviewed by an assigned Shop Steward or Member Action Team Leader. Submitting via our GET HELP page will notify both the Local leadership and an assigned Steward or MAT Leader if one exists for your location or department, and we will follow up. With your cooperation we will help our Division staff prioritize situations that require their expertise or escalation.
