Communications Workers of America Endorse Cherelle Parker for Philadelphia Mayor
Philadelphia, Penn. – The Communications Workers of America (CWA) have endorsed Cherelle Parker for Mayor of Philadelphia.
“Throughout her career in public service, Cherelle Parker has stood with CWA members and fought alongside us at the Statehouse, in the City Council and on the picket line. We are proud to endorse her for Mayor of Philadelphia,” said Ed Mooney, Vice President of Communications Workers of America District 2-13, which includes Philadelphia. “Like us, she understands that union membership is the best way for working people to boost their wages and improve their working conditions, and that good, family-supporting union jobs are the backbone of Philadelphia’s economy.”
"I am honored and humbled to have the endorsement of the Communications Workers," said Cherelle Parker. "This endorsement from thousands of Philadelphia CWA members and retirees – blue-collar workers, customer service workers, retail workers, technical workers, – shows our broad base of support, and how our message resonates across the city. Together, with the support of CWA, we will ensure that Philadelphia is the safest, cleanest and greenest city in America, and that we provide economic opportunity for everyone, especially through strong unions and strong union membership."
