CWA, AFL-CIO Endorse Recchia

This week, Gravesend Democrat Domenic Recchia, challenging Conservative Republican incumbent Michael Grimm in New York's 11th Congressional District, announced endorsements from Local 1, Communications Workers of America (CWA), and the New York American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO).

CWA Local 1 represents over 175,000 workers in 327 local unions in the northeast, across a wide spectrum of job titles in telecommunications, healthcare, higher education, manufacturing, broadcast and cable television, commercial printing, and newspapers. 

New York AFL-CIO represents 2.5 million members, retirees and families across 3,000 affiliated public sector, private sector and building trades unions statewide. President Mario Cilento recalled that, as a City Council Member, Recchia was a fearless and effective fighter for working families. He expects Recchia to bring that same leadership to the congressional battle for better jobs, better transportation infrastructure and better public services, Cilento said.
