The new officers of the Southern NJ Central Labor Council, President Robert Schiavinato (AFM) and Secretary-Treasurer Leon Jones (BAC), were sworn in yesterday by Congressman Donald Norcross (D-01) and New Jersey State AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Laurel Brennan. During the meeting, council members and labor officials spoke glowingly of the new leadership team and their commitment to our union values.
As a former President of the Southern NJ CLC, Congressman Norcross commended the new officers and spoke extensively about their leadership and dedication to the labor movement. Secretary-Treasurer Brennan, who previously served as Secretary-Treasurer of the Southern NJ CLC, expressed the importance of strong and dynamic CLC leadership and recognized those qualities in this new team.
On behalf of the statewide labor movement, the New Jersey State AFL-CIO congratulates Brothers Schiavinato and Jones on their new leadership roles as well as Alfred Laubsch, Jr., the Business Manager of IBEW Local 30 and the newly appointed COPE Director for the Southern NJ CLC. This leadership team will continue to ensure a strong and united labor voice throughout Southern New Jersey that will advance the progressive mission of the labor movement to benefit all working families.
