SEIU Announces 2016 Primary Endorsements

Harrisburg – In advance of the April 26 Primary Election, the SEIU Pennsylvania State Council announced its list of endorsed candidates.

“Elections are an opportunity to identify men and women who will be champions for the issues that matter most to working families,” said Gabe Morgan, President of the State Council and PA State Director for SEIU Local 32BJ.  “These are individuals that stand in solidarity with 80,000 SEIU members in fighting for a $15 wage and the right to form a union.  They stand with us in fighting for quality health and child care and reforms to our broken immigration and criminal justice systems.”

SEIU’s endorsement process is led by members across the commonwealth.  Candidates for office meet with committees comprised of members representing SEIU’s four major locals – SEIU Local 32BJ, SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania, SEIU Local 668, and the Joint Board of Workers United.  SEIU will announce another round of endorsements for the general election.
