JACKIE GORDON ANNOUNCES YET ANOTHER KEY LABOR ENDORSEMENT

Teamsters Local 237 Endorses Gordon in NY-02

 

BABYLON, NY— Today, Lieutenant Colonel (Ret.) Jackie Gordon, Democratic candidate for New York’s Second Congressional District announced she has received the endorsement of Teamsters Local 237. 

 

The Teamsters are proud to endorse Jackie Gordon in the race for New York’s Second Congressional District. Gordon understands the critical role of unions, and will be a steadfast defender of Long Island’s working- families as a representative in Washington. 

 

Jackie Gordon is a combat veteran, an educator, a public servant, and a community leader. While in college and teaching in local schools, she enlisted in the United States Army Reserve and served for over 29 years. An educator, Gordon has been a member of the New York State United Teachers for more than 32 years. 

 

The endorsement of Teamsters Local 237 is the latest in a series of significant labor endorsements that Gordon has received this year. Previous endorsements include IBEW Local 1049, the New York State AFL-CIO, NYSUT, the New York State Nurses Association, SEIU Local 1199, RWDSU, the New York State Council of Machinists, Amalgamated Transit Union, and the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen. 

 

“It is an honor to have Teamsters Local 237 place their trust in me to serve as their next representative,” Gordon said. “The endorsement of labor organizations, particularly at this critical moment when we are working to ensure more union jobs are created and our community is supported by competent leadership, means so much to me.” 

 

This expanding coalition of grassroots and organized support of Gordon demonstrates that she is well-positioned to flip this highly competitive seat come November.
