Rochester, NY – Today, Joe Morelle announced that the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, District Lodge 65, has endorsed his candidacy for the 25th Congressional District.


“There is no better person to represent our hardworking men and women in Washington than Joe Morelle,” said Ronald Warner, Directing Business Representative of International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, District Lodge 65. “He has always stood up for our members and joined us in the fight for increased job opportunities and better wages. We need Joe in Congress to continue fighting on behalf of working families everywhere.”


“I am humbled by the outpouring of support from so many in our labor community,” said Morelle. “It has been an honor to work alongside these men and women in an effort to advance the interests of all working people. I look forward to continuing to partner with them as we work to create more job opportunities, improve healthcare, and ensure a fair wage for everyone who calls this nation home.”


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.


This is the latest in a series of recent union endorsements Morelle has received, including: Worker’s United, International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 118, Rochester Building and Construction Trades Council, and Amalgamated Transit Union Local 282.
