Iron Workers Local 7 has endorsed Joe Gravellese in the race for State Representative in the 16th Suffolk District (Revere, Chelsea, Saugus).
Local 7 represents over 3,500 workers in New England.
“I’ve had great conversations with the people at Local 7 and truly appreciate their advocacy on the issues we care about – strengthening the pipeline to good union jobs by eliminating barriers to vocational and technical education, cracking down on wage theft, and fixing our transportation infrastructure,” said Gravellese.
“It’s been a pleasure getting to know more about the priorities of Local 7 and I look forward to fighting for them and all working people on Beacon Hill.”
Robert MacNeil, President of Iron Workers Local 7, said that Local 7 “wholeheartedly endorsed [Gravellese’s] candidacy,” referencing the importance of doing “the hard work required, such as bringing people together to have challenging conversations.”
Local 7 is the fourth announced building trades endorsement for Gravellese’s Democratic primary campaign, in addition to Operating Engineers Local 4, Tunnel Workers Local 88, and Bricklayers Local 3.
