Thiele Receives Union Endorsements

New York State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr.

New York State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. has earned the endorsement of the Civil Service Employees Association and the New York State United Teachers, a federation of more than 1,200 local unions representing current and retired employees in New York schools, colleges and healthcare facilities, in his bid for re-election this November, according to two press releases issued by his office last week. Mr. Thiele is a member of the Independence Party.

“I am honored to be endorsed in my re-election to the State Assembly by the CSEA. Unions are the backbone of this country,” Mr. Thiele said about the endorsement. “They established a foundation for job security and economic stability for all working people. I support, and will continue to fight for, the right of every person to have access to good jobs, good benefits and fair wages, as they are fundamental to achieving a sustainable standard of living.”

There will be no primaries for the State Assembly. The general election is November 6.
