“Working families in Hudson and Essex counties need leaders who they can count on to fight for them, and our coalition is proud to endorse this group of Democrats who always strive to live up to that value,” PATH Labor Coalition President Joseph Dominiczak said in a statement.
“Democrats must once again become the party of working people and we hope to stand together with all of these elected officials to move towards more equitable treatment for our members.”
Representing nearly 1,000 union workers, the labor union said they selected their endorsements who shared their values on workers’ rights, equal treatment, and justice.
In addition to Booker and Pascrell, their endorsements include all of the candidates running on the Democratic party line in Hudson and Essex.
