SEIU NJ State Council Endorses Democratic Slate, Recognizing Labor Champions

“The SEIU New Jersey State Council endorses Democratic candidates – diverse leaders – with committed records to labor and who, through their policy decisions, continue to fight for NJ workers. Our vote of confidence is for those who have stood up for workers’ right to unionize, for safe staffing ratios in hospitals and nursing homes and who stand up against large corporations’ union-busting tactics.

This election is important.  Let’s re-elect on November 7 those who lifted their voices and fought for us and who believe everyone should equally prosper in this country and state,” said SEIU NJ State Council President Megan Chambers, who is also Co-Manager of the Laundry, Distribution, and Food Service Joint Board, Workers United SEIU.

The SEIU NJ State Council is composed of unions representing service employees across the state, including health care, warehouse, laundry, and school cafeteria workers. Our diverse membership also includes motor vehicle inspectors, resident physicians, and municipal employees in Newark. The council includes 1199 SEIU Healthcare Workers East, Laundry, Distribution and Food Service Joint Board of Workers United, The Committee of Interns and Residents, and 32BJ Motor Vehicle Inspectors.

SEIU NJ State Council previously recognized and endorses the candidacy of the following legislators as “Champions of Labor.”

Senator Vin Gopal, District 11

Senator Linda Greenstein, District 14

Senator Andrew Zwicker, District 16

Senator Joe Vitale, District 19
