Rochester, NY – Today, the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 282 endorsed Joe Morelle’s candidacy for the 25th Congressional District. ATU is the fourth union endorsement that Morelle has received to date.


“Joe has a long history of supporting the transit transportation industry,” said Jacques Chapman, President of ATU Local 282. “He has stood alongside our workers time and time again as we fight for more job opportunities and better wages. As our next Congressman, Joe will continue to be a strong advocate for our members and working men and women everywhere.”


“ATU members are some of the most dedicated public servants in our community and I am truly grateful for their support,” said Morelle. “Now, more than ever, it is critical that our working families have a representative Washington who will work tirelessly to continue to create more job opportunities, expand access to affordable healthcare for all, and ensure a fair wage for every person.”


Morelle, who currently serves as a state Assemblymember representing the towns of Brighton, Irondequoit and parts of the city of Rochester, has spent a lifetime in public service working to advance the best interests of his community. In the Assembly, Morelle has successfully fought for the passage of legislation to raise the minimum wage in New York State, establish paid family leave to ease the burden on our working families, improve access to healthcare for all people, bring millions of dollars in infrastructure improvements to our area, and increase workforce development training to ensure individuals have the skills and training they need to be successful.
