BRUNSWICK, NY – Aaron Gladd, candidate for State Senate District 43 and U.S. Army Combat Veteran, today announced that he has received an endorsement from the New York State Conference of Operating Engineers (IUOE), who primarily represent operating engineers working as heavy equipment operators, mechanics, and surveyors in the construction industry. Gladd has committed to protecting union jobs and strengthening New York’s legacy as a leader in workers’ rights as a key priority of his campaign.
“Throughout this campaign, Aaron Gladd has shown a commitment to rebuilding New York, pledging to support desperately needed infrastructure investments, and protecting union construction jobs. The New York State Conference of Operating Engineers is proud to endorse Aaron and stand with him in his campaign for state Senate.” Daniel J. McGraw, President, New York State Conference of Operating Engineers.
“One of my key priorities as state senator will be investing in key infrastructure projects for upstate New York,” said Aaron Gladd. “Operating Engineers and all of our unions bring the very real concerns of the working class to Albany, and I am here to work with them to make sure the men and women building our state are heard.”
Gladd has earned the support from workers across New York State for his commitment to protect their safety and to fight for them in Albany. The endorsement from Operating Engineers joins previous endorsements from LIUNA-NY, New York State Nurses Association, 1199SEIU and the New York Public Employees Federation (PEF).
