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.

NYAcitivists_feat.jpg1199SEIU Registered Nurses sent a letter to the producers of The View and co-hosts Joy Behar and Michelle Collins, to respectfully correct their uninformed comments about nurses. The View hosts made their comments in response to the monologue below by Miss Colorado Kelley Johnson, who is a dedicated nurse. We educated The View co-hosts about the critical role that nurses play as highly skilled, educated professionals. And we let them know that RNs not only dedicate our lives to providing the highest quality healthcare, but also we advocate and fight for our patients on the local, state and national levels!
