Sheila Oliver, with Murphy and the First Lady.
The SEIU NJ State Council said it proudly endorses the reelection of Governor Phil Murphy, Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver and a slate of Democratic lawmakers for election on November 2.

The council is comprised of unions representing diverse service employees across the state including health care, warehouse, industrial laundry and school cafeteria workers, motor vehicle inspectors, resident physicians and Newark municipal employees.

“The Murphy administration has kept its promise delivering on issues that improve workers’ lives, such as significantly raising the minimum wage, enacting paid sick days, and expanding pre-K and paid family leave.  Critical and long-overdue reforms in the healthcare sector were initiated, including safe staffing ratios in nursing homes.  A second term for Gov. Murphy is critical to building on these successes and continuing to make progress for working people in New Jersey,” said Milly Silva, President of the State Council and Executive Vice President of 1199SEIU United Health Care Workers East.”

“The Murphy Administration and our legislative allies have advanced a range of important issues. We trust that Governor Murphy, Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver and the lawmakers we’ve endorsed will work hard to make sure that workers in both the private and public sectors will participate fully in New Jersey’s economic recovery,” said Megan Chambers, Vice-President of the State Council and Co-Manager of the Laundry, Distribution and Food Service (LDFS) Joint Board, Workers United, SEIU.

 # Members of the SEIU NJ State Council include 1199SEIU Healthcare Workers East, The Laundry, Distribution and Food Service Joint Board of Workers United, The Committee of Interns and Residents and 32BJ Motor Vehicle Inspectors.
