1199 began as New York City pharmacists’ Union in 1932 and New York City remains, to this day, the primary base of the organization. In 1959, the largely male, Jewish drugstore Union began to transform itself by launching drives to organize the city’s voluntary, not-for profit hospitals and their primarily female, African-American and Latino workers.

Everyday, 1199SEIU members are continuing to build on our historic growth in New York by uniting and organizing healthcare and home care workers across the state.

ff15_nyc_feat23.jpgGrey skies, a deluge and a steady drizzle didn’t dampen the spirit of the Fight for $15 yesterday in New York City. On Tuesday morning hundreds rallied in downtown Brooklyn where they were joined by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. In the evening, thousands marched and rallied at events in downtown Manhattan. The events were part of a nationwide day of action in cities across the country where workers from every sector demanded justice, equality and a $15 minimum hourly wage. Even those who currently make more than $15 turned out to show support for their sisters and brothers struggling to make ends meet on $8.00 an hour.

Screen_shot_2015-10-26_at_1.32.35_PM.pngI was just scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed when I came across a great 1199 post: A big, pink “1199SEIU Stands With Planned Parenthood.” My Union was joining in the Sept. 29 “Pink Out” in solidarity with Planned Parenthood and in the fight for women’s healthcare in America. I was so proud I quickly changed my profile picture to bright pink. Great job with social media 1199! Social media can be a very powerful tool to make our voices heard!
