Pennsylvania AFL-CIO Executive Council Announces 2020 Election Endorsements

The Executive Council of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO voted to endorse 189 candidates at the federal, state, and local levels.  Representing 700,000 workers and 51 affiliate unions across the Commonwealth, the State Federation believes that these endorsed candidates will protect workers’ safety and health, defend good jobs, and fight for economic justice.

The Pennsylvania AFL-CIO and our Central Labor Councils have an extensive vetting process for candidates seeking the endorsement of working people.  The National AFL-CIO announced the support of former Vice President Joe Biden for President earlier this Summer.  The officers of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO made the following statements:

“No election before has been as important as the one we face this Fall.  Pennsylvania’s unions have endorsed public servants who put the needs of working families ahead of partisan interests. The Union Movement is not a political party; we endorse candidates who support economic justice and commit to protecting the rights of workers, regardless of whether they have a “D” or an “R” after their name,” remarked President Rick Bloomingdale.

Secretary-Treasurer Frank Snyder added, “Pennsylvanians have 50 days, beginning September 14th to cast their votes and make their voices heard.  As the General Election approaches this Fall, coupled with the uncertain status of the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to be concerned with potential voter disenfranchisement.  The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania must guarantee that all voters have the opportunity to cast their votes safely and securely in the coming months.”
