The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) today endorsed Ruben Gallego for Congress.
“Ruben Gallego is a rising star in progressive politics and a strong voice for working families,” said Maya Castillo, President of SEIU Arizona. “Ruben is an advocate for comprehensive immigration reform and has been working hard in Arizona to build support on this critical issue.”
SEIU represents 2.1 million workers across the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. It is the largest healthcare union, the largest property service union and the second largest public service union in the country.
Gallego now has been endorsed by nearly every significant labor organization in Arizona. In addition to SEIU, Gallego has the backing of AFL-CIO, UFCW, the Building and Construction Trades, AFSCME and the Teamsters.
