Congratulations to AFT 3977 Brother David Gierek on being appointed to Saddle Brook Council in June. His appointment marks the 919th labor candidate in New Jersey!
Brother Gierek is an alumni of the 2013 class of the New Jersey State AFL-CIO’s Annual Labor Candidates School, which provides union members with unrivaled instruction on how to run and win an election campaign. He is also a 20 year member of the Garfield Federation of Teachers. He will be running in November to be elected to the remainder of the 3-year term. We look forward to his election and building on the outstanding success of this program with dozens of labor candidate victories in November.
