The following statement can be attributed to Roxana Rivera, Vice President of 32BJ SEIU
“On behalf of the 18,000 men and women that make up our union in the Greater Boston area, we are proud to endorse Damali Vidot in her re-election bid. Councilwoman Vidot has been a powerful champion for working people during her current term in office and we are confident that she will continue this advocacy if reelected. She has stood with 32BJ maintenance workers in their fight for a fair contract and has marched with airport workers fighting for better lives and safer airports for Boston travelers. Councilwoman Vidot has vigilantly advocated for thousands of her constituents in the fight for a $15 minimum wage in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Once re-elected, we also look forward to supporting her unwavering commitment to the immigrant communities in Chelsea.
With 163,000 members in eleven states and Washington, D.C., 32BJ SEIU is the largest property service workers union in the country.
