NEW CASTLE-32BJ SEIU—the union representing Delaware commercial office cleaners and property service workers—today celebrated the election of Stephanie Hansen to the DE State Senate.
“Stephanie Hansen’s victory affirms that despite what is happening in Washington, voters want leaders who will fight for working families and protect the most vulnerable among us. We must act locally to resist the intolerance and destruction that is happening nationally. We’re excited that Stephanie Hansen will be heading to Dover to fight for raising the wage, good public schools and equality for all Delawareans,” said Gabe Morgan, Vice President of 32BJ SEIU.
32BJ SEIU members knocked on hundreds of doors to turn out the vote for Hansen. The union, which has pushed to raise the wage in Delaware, will continue to fight for legislation that levels the playing field for working families.
“Politicians make a big difference locally for wages and good jobs,” said Rosa Roberts a cleaner and 32BJ SEIU member. “Good people like Stephanie Hansen need our help, they can’t do it alone”
With more than 163,000 members in 11 states, including more than 21,000 in PA and DE, 32BJ SEIU is the largest property service workers union in the country.
