SEATTLE – The McGinn for Mayor campaign is honored today to have received the endorsement of SEIU Local 925 and SEIU Local 6.
SEIU Local 925 unites 18,000 members across the state who work in education from early learning through higher education as well as members who work in local government and non profits.
This latest endorsement by a union representing working people in Seattle is a sign of growing momentum for Mayor McGinn as the candidate with the strongest record of fighting for living wage jobs and benefits in Seattle.
“I am honored to have earned the endorsement of those fighting for living wage jobs and benefits in our city,” said Mayor McGinn. “I am committed to continuing to fight for better working conditions and jobs for all Seattle residents. We are not going to compete in the global economy by racing to the bottom and setting policies that allow big business to scoop up as much profit as possible at the expense of everyday workers.”
