Phoenix, AZ – Today, Arizona’s UNITE HERE Local 631 announced their support for Kyrsten Sinema in the race to represent Arizona’s Ninth Congressional District. Organized since 1912, UNITE HERE Local 631 focuses on improving the workplace standards for hard working Arizonans in the hospitality industry. The union represents approximately 2000 workers in properties across the Phoenix metropolitan area.
As an advocate and policy maker, Sinema has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to protecting the rights of working people in Arizona. UNITE HERE Local 631 has chosen to endorse Sinema as the right person for Congres who will stand up for working families.
“I’m humbled by the support of UNITE HERE”, said Sinema. “Arizona’s workers are part of the ninety-nine percent that Congress has failed to look out for. UNITE HERE’s members are the often forgotten backbone of the hospitality industry. I’m running for Congress because I believe that everyday people who work hard for a living deserve as much of a voice in government as the rich and powerful.”
