WARWICK, RI- General Treasurer and congressional candidate Seth Magaziner was today endorsed by the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 328, which represents thousands of grocery, food service, healthcare and transportation workers. The majority of Local 328 members work at Stop & Shop.
“Seth is someone that truly walks the walk to support workers – from joining us on picket lines to advocating for hazard pay for grocery store workers who showed up to work at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic- Seth has been a true friend to working people,” said UFCW President Tim Melia. “We are endorsing Seth because we know in Congress, he will continue to work to create good jobs, make healthcare more affordable and protect the right to organize.”
Magaziner has used the Office of the General Treasurer in innovative ways to promote economic opportunity and fight for working families across Rhode Island. Magaziner has been a vocal supporter of key issues like raising the minimum wage, cracking down on wage theft and worker misclassification, and protecting the right to organize.
“I thank the United Food and Commercial Workers for their endorsement of my campaign,” said General Treasurer and congressional candidate Seth Magaziner. “These frontline workers kept our state running, even in the midst of a pandemic and I join all Rhode Islanders in thanking them for their hard work. This is a critical time for our country and we need representatives in Congress who will fight for working families. I will take on that fight.”
Magaziner has earned 16 endorsements from unions that represent Rhode Island workers. Supporters are encouraged to visit sethmagaziner.com to learn more about the campaign and to follow along on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
