EDISON, N.J., May 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters (NRCC) is pleased to announce its endorsement of Mikie Sherrill in her campaign for a U.S. House of Representatives seat (NJ-11th District) in the United States Congress.

The NRCC will be holding an endorsement event – open to the media – on May 12th at the Parsippany Police Athletic League (33 Baldwin Road, Parsippany, NJ 07054) at 11 a.m.

“I am honored to have the support of the men and women of the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters and look forward to standing together to improve the quality of life for residents in New Jersey. The work our unions do is critical to making sure workers have access to fair wages, educational opportunities, quality and affordable healthcare, and a secure retirement,” said Mikie Sherrill. “It is time for new leadership in Washington that shares these values and will focus on moving New Jersey’s economy forward.”

The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters takes the issue of endorsing elected official candidates seriously and only endorses candidates who hold the same values as we do of protecting and preserving workers’ rights. We only provide endorsements to candidates that support Davis-Bacon protections, encourage the use of Project Labor Agreements, fight 1099 Worker Misclassification and support fair wages and benefits for working people.

“We are pleased to endorse Mikie Sherrill’s election bid for a seat in U.S. Congress and will fully support her campaign through get out the vote efforts,” said Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters’ Executive Secretary-Treasurer John Ballantyne. “She believes in supporting strong workers’ rights and stands with the NRCC’s beliefs that fair wages, health and retirement benefits should make up the fabric of the middle-class.”
