SEIU California has endorsed Gavin Newsom as California’s next governor.
As public education workers, our goal is not only to elect the next Governor, but to also hold him accountable on the issues we care about. We will work to ensure that Gavin Newsom understands the importance of supporting summer unemployment relief for school workers and collective bargaining rights for child care providers.
“I’m honored to have earned the endorsement of the 700,000 working people of SEIU California and proud to share their vision for a strong, diverse, dynamic and just California that can only be achieved when working people have the power that comes from joining together in their unions,” said Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom. “The key to accomplishing economic equity is ensuring more working people have the power and the right to organize. SEIU members are defending and advancing California’s values on the most crucial issues facing our state — health care, home care, criminal justice, early education to higher education, and respect for every person’s hard work, regardless of immigration status. Every day, these hard-working women and men are showing our state how a collective voice makes a difference and moves us closer to the society we aim for. As California’s next Governor, I will be proud to stand with SEIU members to create a California that respects workers’ voices and delivers on the promise of opportunity for all.”
