From The Leslie Danks Burke Campaign:
The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) Local 1 has endorsed Leslie Danks Burke for State Senate in the 58th district. The UFCW is the largest private sector union in the United States, representing 1.3 million professionals and their families in grocery stores, meatpacking, food processing, retail shops, and other industries.
“Leslie Danks Burke has stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the working people of our region for years, and we are proud to back her now as she runs for State Senate. Now more than ever, we need a leader like Leslie who will fight for good wages, better benefits, and workplace protections for all workers. We know Leslie will never sit back while working families are struggling, and we’re ready to keep working with her to build a better life for the people of Upstate New York,” said Frank C. DeRiso, President of UFCW Local 1.
“Throughout this pandemic, UFCW members have been at the frontlines, staffing our grocery stores and ensuring that we can put food on the table for our families,” said Danks Burke. “I’m proud to stand alongside the UFCW and ready to keep fighting for a real seat at the table for working families in Albany.”
