Statement by Bill A. Lloyd, President of Service Employees International Union (SEIU) California State Council, on SEIU California’s endorsement of Congressman Howard Berman in the 30th Congressional District.
“We are very proud to endorse Howard Berman for Congress in the 30th Congressional District. He is a champion for working families as we struggle for good jobs, homes, and a brighter future for our children.
“Congressman Berman has been an extraordinary friend of working families in Congress for nearly three decades, and before that he fought for working people in his capacity as a California State Assemblymember and labor attorney.
“In the legislature and in the courtroom Congressman Berman has tirelessly promoted the rights of farm workers, building services workers, social workers, and state employees.
“We are going to work hard to send Congressman Berman back to Congress, because we have complete confidence that he will continue fighting for a fair economy that works for all of us, not just the wealthy and corporations.”
SEIU California is a coalition of over 700,000 janitors, social workers, security officers, home care workers, school and university employees, healthcare workers, and city, county and state employees represented by SEIU local unions throughout California. We come together to build a better California by fighting to pass policies and elect candidates that benefit working families and advance the issues we care about: affordable healthcare, good wages, retirement security for all, a healthy environment, good schools and universities, and stronger communities. We believe that by working together we can build a California where working families can thrive again.
