BALTIMORE (Sept. 12, 2022) – Today, the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Locals 27, 400, and 1994 MCGEO, endorsed the Democratic nominee for Maryland Governor Wes Moore in the 2022 Maryland Gubernatorial Election.
“Collectively our unions represent thousands of Maryland’s hard-working, essential workers who have kept the state running through a deadly pandemic and the economic impacts that followed. We firmly believe that Wes Moore and Aruna Miller will be champions for UFCW members as the next Governor and Lt. Governor. From empowering Maryland’s Department of Labor to enforce our labor laws to confronting cost of living issues, the Moore-Miller team has a plan that will support all of Maryland’s working families. Together, we can ensure our state is one that supports the working people who keep it running,” said Local Union Presidents Jason Chorpenning (Local 27), Mark Federici (Local 400), and Gino Renne (Local 1994 MCGEO)
“Leave no one behind isn’t just a message, it’s a mission. And our unions are on the frontlines of that mission. That’s why I’m grateful to have UFCW Locals 27, 400, and 1994 MCGEO in the fight with me to provide more pathways to work, wages, and wealth for Maryland families,” said Wes Moore. “Rising costs and inflation are crippling families across Maryland, and as the next Governor, I’ll do everything I can to help our struggling working families and the organizations that protect them.”
The United Food and Commercial Workers Union Locals 27, 400, and 1994 MCGEO join the Maryland International Association of Fire Fighters, Baltimore Fire Officers Union Local 964, Ironworkers Local 5, Service Employees International Union Local 500, and the Maryland Federation of Police in endorsing Wes Moore in the 2022 Maryland Gubernatorial Election. Wes’ bold mission to leave no one behind by supporting working families and the organizations that lift them up continues to earn plaudits and support from everyday Marylanders and labor leaders across the state.
