The United Auto Workers Endorse Stephanie Schmid
The United Auto Workers (UAW) are endorsing Stephanie Schmid for Congress in New Jersey’s Fourth District.
“United Auto Workers is proud to endorse Stephanie Schmid for Congress in New Jersey’s 4th District. Jobs in the auto industry and our rights as workers have been hit hard for many years, and we are confident that Stephanie will be an advocate for us in Washington, a partner in our fight to ensure a living wage for all workers, the right to collective bargaining, and to keep auto industry jobs here at home. UAW looks forward to working side-by-side with Stephanie in Congress to further benefit the workers of our nation and defend our right to unionize,” said Jeffrey Binz, UAW Region 9 Director.
“I believe that in order to enact change and secure workers’ rights, America’s workers must be supported by elected officials who stand up for them. This endorsement from the United Auto Workers is exceptionally humbling because of the amazing work they do to make sure unions are protected across our nation. As the next Representative in NJ-04, I look forward to partnering with the UAW to represent workers throughout Central Jersey by ensuring they are supported and heard in Washington. Fighting for policies that benefit workers’ rights and livelihoods will always be at the forefront of what I do and what I believe in,” Stephanie said.
Stephanie is a New Jersey native, a retired U.S. Foreign Service Officer and Diplomat who served our country overseas on behalf of the U.S. Department of State, and a human rights litigation attorney and advocate. She won the Democratic primary in NJ-04 with 70% of the vote and continues to work to expand her grassroots coalition to finally bring new leadership to New Jersey’s 4th District for the first time in 40 years. As the next Representative in NJ-04, Stephanie will work tirelessly to ensure that we have access to the resources we need before, during, and after a global crisis.
