One of NJ’s Leading Labor Unions Praises Guy’s Progressive Record and History of Championing Labor Rights
Democratic candidate for Hudson County Executive Craig Guy is announcing that his campaign has been endorsed by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Local 32BJ. One of New Jersey’s most prominent and respected labor unions, SEIU 32BJ is citing Guy’s dedication to championing progressive values, his unwavering support for organized labor and collective bargaining rights, and long record of public service in Hudson County.
“Craig Guy has been in public service for decades and we trust that he will be an outstanding Hudson County Executive,” said Kevin Brown, 32BJ SEIU New Jersey State Director. “Guy’s commitment to the right to collectively bargain is the reason we support him. We look forward to partnering with Guy to advance the cause of working people in Hudson County and all of New Jersey. We are confident that he will fight for workers’ rights.”
A lifelong Democrat and public servant, Guy is running to increase access to affordable housing, protect voting rights, fight to protect abortion access, and stand up for the rights of unions and organized labor in Hudson County. During his time as Chief of Staff to Tom DeGise he has been a consistent champion for diversity at all levels of County Government, and is running to build on the progress made by the previous administration.
“SEIU 32BJ is an exceptional example of what organized labor can do for our economy and for working people,” said Craig Guy. “The right to form a union and to collectively bargain is integral to our democracy, and I am committed to collaborating with Hudson County’s labor community at all levels. I’m running for Hudson County Executive to stand up for progressive values, and I am excited to work with SEIU to move our county forward.”
Craig Guy has previously been endorsed by leading Democratic elected officials like Governor Phil Murphy, Senator Bob Menendez, Senator Cory Booker, and all 12 of Hudson County’s Mayors, as well as leadership from the statewide and Hudson County Fraternal Order of Police, Hudson County Building Trades, CWA and SEIU 32BJ.
