The Essex County & Vicinity Building and Construction Trades Council unanimously voted to endorse Bloomfield Mayor Mike Venezia and the entire Team Venezia in the upcoming June 7th election. The endorsement marks the latest show of support for Team Venezia from organized labor, following earlier endorsements from the PBA and FMBA, as well as many Essex County Democratic leaders.
"Our country was built by union labor and these hardworking men and women are the backbone of our economy and of the Democratic Party," said Mayor Venezia. "I would like to thank the Essex Building Trades for their support and pledge that we will always stand strong with them in the fight for more union jobs."
The Essex County & Vicinity Building and Construction Trades Council consists of 24 Local Unions, and 12,000 Unionized construction workers who live throughout the communities in Essex County.
