(Cherry Hill) – Last week, the NJ AFL-CIO endorsed Congressman Donald Norcross for Congress.

“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.”

Congressman Norcross is a union electrician and currently serves as the Congressional Progressive Caucus Vice-Chair for Labor.

In addition to the New Jersey State AFL-CIO, Congressman Donald Norcross is proud to have the support of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Governor Phil Murphy, and a diverse group of organizations that represent the interests of working people and their rights to education, health care, and environmental justice, including the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the Communications Workers of America, the National Education Association (NEA/NJEA), the New Jersey State Council of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Planned Parenthood Action Fund, New Jersey Citizen Action, and the Sierra Club.
