UFCW Local One Endorses Amber Small for State Senate in 60th District


Buffalo, NY- This week, the United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local One labor union endorsed Amber Small for State Senate in the 60th District.

This marks a key labor endorsement in one of upstate’s most hotly contested senate districts. Western Area Director of UFCW Local One, Mark Manna commented, "We are proud to endorse Amber Small for the 60th District of the New York State Senate. UFCW Local One represents over 900 families in the district and we are confident that Amber will fight for legislation that is fair for working families."

Amber commented “Union jobs mean strong middle class families, and I am proud to have the support of UFCW Local One. Unions have always been there for my family, and I am honored to fight for their efforts in Albany. Together we will bring good jobs to all residents of the 60th District and help hardworking families get the fair shake they deserve.”

Small continued, “This race will be a choice between a community advocate who stands up for middle class workers and equality for all people, or an out of touch 1%er who represents big business and the erosion of the middle class.”
