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.

New York City is set to host what could be the largest climate change protest in history. Organizers expect more than 100,000 people to converge for a People’s Climate March on Sunday. Some 2,000 solidarity events are scheduled around the world this weekend ahead of Tuesday’s United Nations climate summit.

Though not every candidate on the Union’s slate succeeded in winning their race on Primary Day this past Tuesday in New York and Massachusetts, Purple Power was again the key to victory in a number of critical state and local contests.

1199 SEIU today endorsed Governor Andrew Cuomo for Governor and former Congresswoman Kathy Hochul for Lieutenant Governor.  In making the endorsement, the president of the largest union in the state noted Governor Cuomo’s leadership on addressing critical health care challenges facing New Yorkers – including the successful implementation of the NYS health care exchange and securing $8 billion in federal funding for struggling hospitals.
