Demonstrating his position as a long-time advocate for workers and strong supporter of organized labor, Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez (D-Miami) has been endorsed by the Florida AFL-CIO.
“During this pandemic, the value of our frontline and essential workers has been front and center in delivering valuable services to millions of Floridians,” stated Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez. “I am proud to have the endorsement of the Florida AFL-CIO because they are an invaluable partner in our fight to provide fair wages, safe workplaces, and protections from unfair labor practices throughout the state. As we navigate this crisis, I will continue to stand with the Florida AFL-CIO and their members as we seek to build a more equitable economic future for all of our state’s workers.”
The Florida AFL-CIO represents over 500 local labor unions, 10 councils, and over one million union members, retirees, and their families in the state. They work to provide better lives for all workers, members or not, through political and legislative action, grassroots mobilization and education.
“When it comes to having the backs of Florida workers, there is no one we can count on more than Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez,” said Jeffrey Mitchell, President of the South Florida AFL-CIO. “The Florida AFL-CIO is greatly appreciative of Senator Rodriguez’s steadfast advocacy for workers in our state and we look forward to doing all we can to ensure his reelection to District 37.”
