Earlier today, Joe Dujmic's campaign for State Assembly announced they have received the endorsement of the New York State Public Employees Federation.
The Public Employees Federation represents 55,000+ professional, scientific, and technical public employees in the state of New York. The union (known by its acronym, PEF) is one of the largest local white-collar unions in the United States and is New York's second-largest state-employee union. PEF also represents employees who work in private-sector jobs and local government agencies. The union publishes The Communicator, a newsletter with a distribution of more than 70,000, on a monthly basis.
In response to the endorsement, Dujmic stated, "As someone who has dedicated his life to serving the public, I have the utmost respect for PEF and all of its members and want to thank them for their hard work everyday. Although their dedication often goes overlooked, please take time to remember that our public employees have dedicated their lives to making our lives better."
