New York State AFL-CIO Endorses Suozzi
“We need someone in Washington who will create more union jobs, fight for fair wages and a better quality of life for all New Yorkers while fighting back against the ‘right to work’ movement and Tom Suozzi has a proven record of doing just that,” said Mario Cilento, president of the New York State AFL-CIO.
“When Tom served in the House of Representatives, he had a 94% lifetime voting record supporting workers and spearheaded the labor caucus, proving himself a fierce advocate for working people. He is exactly who we need representing us,” Cilento said.
“I have enjoyed a long and warm relationship with the labor unions, and I am grateful for the support and endorsement of the New York State AFL-CIO,” said Tom Suozzi. “This will be a tough race, and the support of these hard-working men and women means a great deal to me. I am excited to take back this seat and look forward to promoting the American Dream, as exemplified by the New York State AFL-CIO. Let’s fix this!”
The Union Movement will be coordinating with the 154,000 union members, retirees, and their families who live in the 3rd Congressional District to ensure a victory for Tom Suozzi.
The New York State AFL-CIO is a federation of 3,000 unions, representing 2.5 million members, retirees, and their families with one goal; to raise the standard of living and quality of life of all working people. We keep New York State Union Strong by fighting for better wages, better benefits, and better working conditions. For more information on the Union Movement in New York, visit www.nysaflcio.org.
