Gianaris Receives Endorsement from Sanitation Union

March 20, 2020

NEW YORK – New York State Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris received the endorsement of the sanitation workers’ union, the Uniformed Sanitationmen’s Association, Local 831, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, for his re-election campaign, the Queens Gazette reported on March 19.

The union “cited Gianaris’ long record of support for organized labor as a major part of their endorsement,” the Gazette reported.

Teamsters Local 831, Uniformed Sanitationmen’s Association President Harry Nespoli said “Gianaris’ dedication to the needs of the community is unparalleled, and that his representation of Western Queens and service as deputy majority leader has been outstanding,” adding that “Gianaris has been an ‘outspoken voice for working New Yorkers, fighting for living wages, healthcare, and standing up against the prevailing anti-worker agenda,’” the Gazette reported.

On a recent visit to the Queens West sanitation garage, Sen. Gianaris thanked the Department of Sanitation employees for their efforts and dedication during the coronavirus pandemic, the Gazette reported.

“Many government workers who perform essential functions – like picking up trash and snow removal – don’t have the choice to work from home. Their difficult jobs take them to every corner of New York and I appreciate what they do every day,” said Sen. Gianaris, the Gazette reported.

“Sanitation workers are among the essential government employees whose jobs won’t stop because of coronavirus,” Gianaris said, the Gazette reported.
