New York Hotel Trades Council Endorses Joe Addabbo for State Senate...

The New York Hotel and Motel Trades Council, AFL-CIO is endorsing Senator Joe Addabbo for his reelection to the 15th Senate District.

Peter Ward, President of the New York Hotel Trades Council, said, “The hard working women and men of the New York Hotel Trades Council are proud to endorse Joe Addabbo. With thousands of new jobs at the upcoming Aqueduct Race Track casino hanging in the balance, Joe stood strong with our union and with his constituents, fighting to ensure that each and every one of those new jobs would be good jobs where workers are given a voice in the workplace and are treated with respect and dignity. In tough economic times like these, we need thoughtful leaders like Joe Addabbo in Albany, who see projects like Aqueduct as opportunities to create good jobs for New Yorkers and generate positive growth for the state.”

Senator Addabbo said, “It is critical that we keep up our efforts to bring good jobs to the community and revitalize the local economy. I am honored to earn the support of the men and women of the New York Hotel Trades Council, and look forward to continuing to fight for working families.”

The New York Hotel Trades Council represents approximately 28,000 non-managerial employees working in all hotel departments.
