The Amalgamated Transit Union endorsed Sen. Bob Menendez on Wednesday.
“Bob Menendez has been a true friend of NJ Transit workers for more than 30 years. He’s been a key ally of the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) since being elected Mayor of Union City in 1986. Through his time in the U.S. House and now in the Senate, he has come through for us time and time again,” said ATU Chairman Ray Greaves. “As the former chairman, and now top Democrat, on the key Senate Subcommittee that oversees transit, he stood up for workers when others tried to force our work to be privatized.”
The union represents more than 8,000 NJ Transit and light rail employees in the state.
