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.

1199SEIU’s Executive Committee should be commended for taking a stand on July 27 and unanimously passing a resolution opposing industrialized gas storage and transport on Central New York’s Seneca Lake. Even though New York State banned the practice of natural gas fracking, the Finger Lakes region has been slated to become the largest fracked-gas storage and transport hub for the Northeastern United States. Seneca Lake will be its epicenter.

I applaud the American Pharmacists Association recent decision to set ethical standards for its members about executions. We pharmacists should not be providing drugs to kill people. The group had to have searched deep within themselves to come to this conclusion. I believe it’s a moral obligation for those of us who know to stand up and support them in their decision.
