In April 2016, 1199SEIU members voted to re-elect President George Gresham and Secretary-Treasurer Maria Castaneda to a third three-year term leading the Union. Reflecting the Union’s continued growth, members cast their ballots in this election for a newly-structured leadership, which is designed to meet the challenges of a changing healthcare industry. The changes are largely in the New York Region; they reflect the growth and evolution of the long-term care industry and hospitals into mega-health systems.

An Election Board comprised of 20 members and 20 alternates was appointed by the Executive Council. Executive Officers, Organizers and Delegates were sworn in at a Joint Delegate Assembly in New York City in June. Delegates were also sworn in at Regional Delegate Assemblies.

The American Arbitration Association counted a total of 21,819 votes in the mail-ballot election.
