This is huge - organized labor continues to rally behind Perry Gershon for Congress:

I'm proud to tell you that our campaign has won the support of the United Auto Workers, Region 9A!

In addition to auto workers, UAW 9A represents over 50,000 child care workers, electronics technicians, technical writers, graduate employees, human services workers, and more.

This is a big deal.

Regional Director Beverley Brakeman had this to say:

"UAW Region 9A is excited to endorse Perry Gershon for the 1st Congressional District. We were proud to endorse Perry in 2018, when he first challenged incumbent Republican Lee Zeldin, and came close to winning.

We are proud to stand with Perry once again, and believe we can get him over the top to add another progressive Democrat to the U.S. House of Representatives.

Perry will fight for labor law reform and workers' rights to vastly improve the lives of our UAW members living in NY-1, who have had to tolerate Zeldin's anti-worker sentiments and votes."

With the enthusiastic support of the working men and women of our community, I'm confident that we're going to roll into the general election ready to take on Lee Zeldin, his SuperPACs, and his corporate cronies.

The UAW endorsement is the third major union to get behind our campaign, joining the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen and the New York State Public Employees Federation (PEF). The labor movement is with us and they know I'm the candidate best able to defeat Lee Zeldin in November.

In honor of UAW 9A's endorsement, will you pitch in $15 or more right now?

Let's beat Lee Zeldin!

For 25 years, I have been a common-sense businessman — not a career politician — so I look at things differently. I know about fixing dysfunction. It starts with hard work, a commitment to results, and perseverance — not scoring cheap political points. We can work together to provide opportunity and create an economy that works for all of us.
