State Sen. Linda Greenstein’s congressional campaign received the backing Friday of the United Services Workers Union.
The USWU, which represents municipal workers throughout the district and some private sector transportation workers, lauded Greenstein for being “a true friend of labor.”
“We support Linda because of her staunch defense of collective bargaining and other issues important to our membership fighting to maintain middle class living standards for themselves and their families,” said United Service Workers Union spokesperson Edward Kahn. “Many of our members are already represented by Linda in her Senate district and have seen first hand her accessibility and work ethic.”
Greenstein is battling against Assemblywoman Bonnie Watson Coleman, Assemblyman Upendra Chivukula and Princeton scientist Andrew Zwicker for the Democratic Party’s nomination to succeed outgoing U.S. Rep. Rush Holt (D-12) in Congress.
