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.

NYSprimaryVictory2016_feat.pngLiving up to the reputation of “political powerhouse,” the hard work of 1199SEIU members once again played an important role in achieving victory for all seventeen of the 1199-backed candidates in the 2016 NYS Primary election. The endorsed candidates, almost all running for a seat in the Assembly or Senate, and all committed to the 1199 Action Platform, were supported with a door-to-door field effort and/or communications program.
