“I am proud to stand with the working people of Jersey City in their fight for economic and social justice, and the Hudson CLC’s endorsement is a huge honor and recognition of that fight,” Fulop said in a statement.
“The work that the CLC does to empower working people and advance labor rights at all levels of government is invaluable, and I am committed to working closely with CLC leadership to advance workers’ rights and ensure equitable economic development in our city.”
The HCCLC is a democratically elected body, dedicated to advocating for justice and workers’ rights at all levels of government.
“The CLC is proud to endorse Mayor Fulop and his council team. Mayor Fulop has proven that he will fight for working people, defend labor rights, and stand up for unions,” added HCCLC President Barry Kushnir.
“He has shown himself to be a true champion for the working class, and I am confident that if re-elected he will continue to build on the progress that his administration has already made in making Jersey City a place where working people come first.”
Fulop has already received labor support from SEIU 32BJ, the Hotel Trades Council, and the Amalgamated Transit Union.
The non-partisan Jersey City municipal elections are on November 2nd, with early voting available between October 23rd and October 31st.
