Pascrell Endorsed By New Jersey Building Trades Council
March 9, 2020

The New Jersey State Building and Construction Trades Council today enthusiastically endorsed Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr.’s (NJ-09) campaign for Congress.

 

“Our members have always been able to count on Bill Pascrell for his unfailing support,” said Bill Mullen, the President of the New Jersey State Building and Construction Trades Council. “No one is stronger on providing tax fairness for New Jersey families and defeating trade agreements that cost American jobs. The working men and women of New Jersey need Bill in Washington because he is our toughest fighter for a fair wage, the right to organize, and greater federal investment in our roads, bridges and rails. The New Jersey Building Trades enthusiastically support Rep. Pascrell’s campaign.”

The Building Trades underscored Pascrell’s work defending the Davis-Bacon Act, his support for Project Labor Agreements, and his continued advocacy for workers’ rights as the reason for their strong Primary Election endorsement.

“The working men and women built the middle class and built the modern America. I am delighted to receive the support of Bill Mullen and the New Jersey Building Trades whose members will build our path to the future,” said Rep. Pascrell. “America’s greatest period of posterity came about because strong unions gave working Americans life-saving protections, a fair share for their labors, and an equal piece of the economic pie. There is zero question that the 40-year assault against organized labor rights has played a decisive role in the loss of opportunity for millions of our workers. Unions like the Building Trades are absolutely essential warriors to fighting back against so-called right to work for less laws and other attacks on labor. I am honored to stand shoulder-to-shoulder and in total solidarity with New Jersey Building Trades members on behalf of labor.” 

Throughout his entire career, Pascrell has been unstinting advocate for working Americans and organized labor. This Congress, Pascrell is a cosponsor and strong supporter of the PRO Act. In the 110th Congress, Pascrell worked to help pass landmark card check legislation (the Employee Free Choice Act) to strengthen labor unions.
