965 Labor Candidate Victories
Labor has done it again. The election of Sister Dahlia Vertreese, IUOE 68, as the Mayor of Hillside is a victory that bears the union label. Labor’s efforts were the heart and soul of this operation as hundreds of our brothers and sisters from across the region spent all week knocking on doors, planting lawn signs, distributing mail, and making calls late into the evening around the holidays – all following a rigorous campaign for the general election just a month ago.Read more

The Hillside runoff election is 3 days away, and this morning more than 80 union volunteers were out in force. If we can keep up this momentum, a victory on Tuesday, December 5th is all but certain.

With the Hillside runoff election only 10 days away, labor hasn’t let up in its effort to elect our union Sister Dahlia Vertreese as the town’s next mayor.

Labor won big this year, and the news just got better. After a tight race for Florence Township Council, our brother from LIUNA 172, Frank Baldorossi, Jr., prevailed. The final vote tally was 645 to 624, a difference of only 21 votes. We also congratulate IBEW 351 Brother Steve Light, who was elected to serve as a member of Absecon Council and our brother from IBEW 3, Michael Soriano, who secured a major victory in his race for Parsippany mayor.
