New Jersey –32BJ SEIU , one of the largest private sector unions in New Jersey with nearly 10,000 members in the Garden State alone, endorsed NJ State Senate Candidate for the 18th District Peter Barnes and NJ Assembly Candidate for the 11th District Ed Zipprich for the Nov 5th legislative elections in New Jersey (list of previously endorsed candidates below)*.
“As an effective assemblyman, Peter Barnes has demonstrated a deep commitment to the issues affecting the working people of our state,” said Kevin Brown, New Jersey Director of 32BJ. “From supporting an increase in the minimum wage to advocating for cost-saving bidding strategies in school districts, Peter Barnes has always put the interest of New Jersey working families first.”
“Just like Barnes, Ed Zipprich is the kind of committed legislator who can stand up to a governor that time after time has opposed policies to help create family-sustaining jobs, like prevailing wage mandates when companies receive economic development grants. Now more than ever New Jersey needs real champions of working families who will stand up to special interests who would deny workers good jobs that will bring them solidly into the middle class.”
“Zipprich and Barnes have repeatedly stood up for working people,” Brown said. “They will be powerful advocates for workers”
With more than 145,000 members, including 9,000 in New Jersey, 32BJ is the largest property services union in the country.
