SEIU PA State Council Announces Endorsed Candidates for the 2024 Primary Election

Harrisburg - . Today, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Pennsylvania State Council, which represents 80,000 workers statewide – including property service workers, health care workers, public service workers, school employees, laundry and distribution workers – announced its list of endorsed candidates for the 2024 Primary Election. General Election endorsements will be announced at a future date.

"For far too long, major corporations have rigged the rules in their favor and have left working people in the dust – and following a pandemic that magnified those injustices, we can’t go back to the ‘normal’ that never worked for essential workers," said Gabe Morgan, President of the SEIU PA State Council and Vice President of SEIU 32BJ.

"Essential workers and caregivers must have our voices heard and our hard work and sacrifice during this pandemic respected. That's why we are proud to endorse candidates who are champions and will work tirelessly to end the crisis of short staffing, raise wages for all workers, and fight for ‘Unions For All’ to expand labor rights to all working people," said Matt Yarnell, Secretary Treasurer of the SEIU PA State Council and President of SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania. "Essential workers know the stakes of this election and are taking action to shape our future by who we endorse and support."

"Pennsylvania workers need bold leadership in Harrisburg. They need elected leaders who will use every tool at their disposal to rewrite the rules to hold corporations responsible and put power back in the hands of working people.That’s why we’re proud to endorse the following SEIU champions for the 2024 primary election,” said Steve Catanese, President of SEIU Local 668.
