AFL-CIO Issues 2020 Endorsements
July 21, 2020
The New Jersey State AFL-CIO today announced endorsements for U.S. President, U.S. Senator and 12 U.S. Representatives from New Jersey, and 45 rank-and-file union members running for county and local offices throughout the state.
The endorsements for the 2020 General Election were made during a meeting of the New Jersey State AFL-CIO Executive Board and were guided by recommendations from New Jersey’s Central Labor Councils. The state labor federation represents 1,000 labor unions and 1 million members.
“This year’s endorsed candidates understand the incredible stress that working families are under,” said Charles Wowkanech, President of the New Jersey State AFL-CIO. “They will work tirelessly so that New Jersey’s middle class benefits from the restoration of jobs and creation of new ones in safe workplaces, protected from infection and injury. These candidates will advocate for skills training and effective education, affordable and plentiful health care, and a secure retirement.
