Newark, N.J.— Today, 32BJ of the Service Employees International Union, which represents 13,000 workers in New Jersey—including commercial office and school cleaners, security officers, airport workers, and school food servers—announced its endorsements of Suzette Cavadas and Clifton People, Jr. for reelection to the Union Township Committee.
“Cavadas and People have stood with us over the years and listened to the issues and needs of 32BJ members who live in the Township of Union. These candidates have shown their commitment to ensuring that working people have access to affordable housing, good jobs and fair wages. They are clear advocates for immigrants and working families who need strong representation at the local level. As we prepare to go back to the bargaining table this year for hundreds of union members living in Union Township, we know we can count on Cavadas and People to stand in solidarity with building service workers who believed in them.”
With nearly 175,000 members in 11 states and Washington, D.C., including 13,000 in New Jersey, 32BJ SEIU is the largest property service workers union in the country.
