The following statement can be attributed to Sam Williamson, 32BJ SEIU Western Pennsylvania District Leader:
“We congratulate Mayor Bill Peduto on his primary election win. He is committed to helping working men, women and their families better themselves through union organizing, the Fight for $15, affordable housing, investment in universal pre-K, and job growth. From the beginning, Mayor Peduto has worked to make Pittsburgh a city that works for everyone. Pittsburghers overwhelmingly responded at the polls by voting for him. 32BJ SEIU is committed in supporting Mayor Peduto as he runs in the general election.”
32BJ SEIU members endorsed Peduto in March and carried out an aggressive voter outreach program knocking on thousands of doors across Pittsburgh for the Mayor.
With 163,000 members in eleven states and Washington, D.C., including 22,000 in Pennsylvania, 32BJ SEIU is the largest property service workers union in the country.
