SACRAMENTO, CA – The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) California today announced the 700,000 member organization’s endorsement of Janice Hahn in the 36th Congressional District special election.
Robin Wilson, a security officer at the airport and one of 40,000 janitors, security officers, airport workers and other service workers of SEIU United Service Workers West, said, “Janice knows how hard working families struggle to create opportunities and a good life for our families. She’s on our side. She also knows that airport service workers are the eyes and ears of our nation’s transportation security system and she’ll be a champion to make sure all our families stay safe.”
Timothy Butcher, a Heavy-Duty Truck Operator for the City of Los Angeles and a member of SEIU Local 721 said, “Janice Hahn will stand up to those who want to scapegoat public servants, because she knows that the vital public services we provide help create strong communities and a society with real opportunities. She has also courageously defended good jobs for working families even in tough times.”
As a Los Angeles City Councilwoman, Hahn has stood with hotel janitors and other workers in their fight for living wages and fair treatment at work. Hahn is committed to protecting and investing in the good jobs needed to build a sustainable economy.
