International Union of Operating Engineers Local 825 Endorses Mikie Sherrill for Congress

SPRINGFIELD, NJ (August 30, 2018): Today, the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 825 announced its support and endorsement for Mikie Sherrill for Congress in New Jersey’s 11th District.

“With organized labor under attack on all fronts from the Legislative chambers to the Courts – the time for elected representatives that understand building trades issues at all levels of government has never been more critical,” said Greg Lalevee, Business Manager of IUOE 825. “We are proud to put the support of our membership behind Mikie Sherrill’s candidacy for Congress. Local 825 members and District 11 voters can be assured that Mikie will provide the steady leadership, commitment to jobs and economic development and support for workers’ rights we can be proud of.”

Headquartered in Springfield, NJ, the International Union Operating Engineers Local 825 represents more than 7,100 members throughout New Jersey and five counties of lower New York: Rockland, Orange, Ulster, Sullivan and Delaware.

“I am proud to receive the endorsement of the IUOE,” said congressional candidate Mikie Sherrill. “Faced with the rising cost of living and stagnant wages, working families across New Jersey are concerned about the future. Our community deserves a voice in Congress that puts the economic well-being of residents first, and I will work hard to help create good-paying jobs and build a vibrant economy here in New Jersey.”
