Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters Executive Secretary-Treasurer, William C. Sproule informed Senator Joseph Cryan that his organization has endorsed the Senator’s campaign for re-election in June 8th’s Democratic Primary.
“After careful consideration by The Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters leadership and its members New Jersey, we have decided to endorse you in your campaign. Supporting campaigns like yours is important to our union and our members as we look to advocate with you on issues that affect our union, the union families we represent, and all the workers in our community.”
He continued, “You are receiving the endorsement of our union because we share a common desire to protect workers’ rights in our region and the country as a whole. Making sure that working class families receive a fair wage, good benefits, and the safe working conditions they deserve seems like common sense, but you understand there are those who actively take steps to weaken workers’ rights. Their actions weaken our local standard of living and our communities as a whole. Our union looks forward to advocating for these rights with you as well as fighting against construction industry tax fraud, so-called right-to-work legislation, misclassification of workers, coerced labor, and more. By working with leaders like you, we can protect fair standards, protect working families, and provide opportunity for good paying jobs in New Jersey.
“Congratulations on your selection and endorsement by the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters. We look forward to your victory in June and continuing to work with you to better our community.”
Cryan thanked Sproule and the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters:
“It is my great honor to receive the endorsement of the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters in our campaign to continue to represent residents in Elizabeth, Union, Roselle and Hillside. I was raised to believe that everyone deserves a safe working environment, strong benefits and a fair wage. As a public servant, I’ve made it a priority to try and increase access and opportunity for working men and women and to stand side by side in the fight against anyone who would attempt to diminish those standards. If I am re-elected, that fight will continue.”
