A union with 12,000 members in the state endorsed Assemblyman Reed Gusciora on Friday.

“I am humbled and grateful to receive the support of 32BJ SEIU. Workers are the backbone of our economy in New Jersey, and in particular, our capital city of Trenton,” Gusciora said. “I pledge to continue to fight for better wages and benefits for all workers if elected mayor.”

The announcement comes on the heels of the Mercer County Building and Construction Trade Council, led by Assemblyman Wayne DeAngleo, endorsing Gusciora’s opponent, Paul Perez, on Thursday.

“I am proud that the most respected organization of local boilermakers, bricklayers, carpenters, electricians, elevator constructors, finishing trades, insulators, iron workers, laborers, operative plasterers and cement masons, operating engineers, pipe trades, roofers, sheet metal workers, painters, allied trades and Teamsters truly understand our plans to rebuild Trenton into a metropolitan center of excellence.” Perez said.
