CWA ENDORSES VIN GOPAL FOR STATE SENATE IN 11TH DISTRICT
Gopal earns his second union endorsement with backing of CWA NJ
(Long Branch, NJ) – Today, the Communications Workers of America (CWA) endorsed Vin Gopal for LD11 Senate. This marks the second union endorsement for Gopal.
“With Chris Christie in the Statehouse and Donald Trump in the White House, we need leaders at all levels who will fight for economic and social justice – not people who only go along to get along,” said CWA NJ State Director Hetty Rosenstein. “For years, Jennifer Beck has carried Christie’s water. And the Christie-Beck agenda has consistently hurt middle-class and working families. We enthusiastically support Vin Gopal. He’ll fight for jobs, services, fully-funded pensions and an economic system that works for all.”
“I am so happy to have the support of CWA New Jersey,” said Gopal. “The working families who make up the CWA are the families that I am committed to fighting for in Trenton. Monmouth County needs a true advocate in our State Senate who will put our community’s interests first, and I promise to be that voice.”
The Communications Workers of America (AFL-CIO) represents both private sector and public workers. CWA represents more than 70,000 working families in New Jersey, including over 40,000 state workers, 15,000 county and municipal workers, and thousands of workers in the telecommunications, airlines, healthcare and direct care industries.
