​BALDWIN PLACE, NY –  Few organizations have advocated for the safety and advancement for workers’ rights than the New York City Council of Carpenters and the New England Regional Council of Carpenters.  Both organizations have stood on the front line fighting for fair wages for their workers, safe workplaces and accountability of employers.  At a rally yesterday, both unions emphatically endorsed State Senator Terrence Murphy for re-election.

Senator Murphy said, “I was raised in a union home and learned early about the values of hard work, dedication and sacrifice.  The members of the New York City Council of Carpenters and the New England Regional Council of Carpenters work everyday to earn a fair wage so they can deliver for their families.  It is our obligation to make sure their workplace is safe, their wages are fair and they have a jobs right here in New York.  I’m proud to stand with them and thank them for their support.”

Grahm McHugh, President of the New York City District Council of Carpenters said, “We are proud to endorse New York State Senator Terrence Murphy.  Senator Murphy has always understood the issues facing working people across New York State.  He has been a consistent advocate fighting for quality jobs and fair standards.”

Bill Banfield, Eastern New York Regional Manager of the New England Regional Council of Carpenters added, “Through this campaign and throughout his career, Senator Murphy has been a strong advocate for members of the NERCC and their families, specifically through his work and sponsorship of legislation that would finally define public works.  We believe he will continue to be a tireless partner on the issues that face a 21st century workforce.”
