Last week’s midterm elections saw many workers’ rights supporters win their races in federal and state elections across the country.
“UFCW’s members helped deliver a powerful message by casting their votes for the candidates that best represent the needs of our nation’s hard-working essential workers,” said UFCW International President Marc Perrone in a statement.
“Across the country, UFCW members mobilized to vote for candidates up and down the ballot that prioritized the bread-and-butter issues of working people. Their voice was heard loud and clear in key races in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Minnesota, Massachusetts, and Maryland,” Perrone added.
“Now, it’s time for those elected from both parties on Tuesday night to put politics aside, work together, and deliver real solutions that address the everyday problems facing our members, their families, and millions of workers across this country. From now until the next election, the UFCW, America’s largest private sector union of essential workers, will continue to fight for the better life our members – and all workers – have earned and deserve.”
