Buono gets backing of machinists

Democratic gubernatorial nominee Barbara Buono today received the endorsement of the New Jersey State Council of Machinists, which represents 20,000 private-sector workers in New Jersey.

“We are proud to endorse Senator Buono today because we know that she is committed to fighting for New Jersey’s workers and their families,” said Vincent Addeo, President of the New Jersey State Council of Machinists. “She has spent her career advocating for policies that benefit working people and we are confident that her economic vision will lift up New Jersey workers and move our state forward.”
The bulk of Buono’s union endorsements to date have come from public-sector groups, while her opponent, Gov. Chris Christie, has dominated the trade unions.
