The UNITE HERE! California State Council and International union has endorsed Democrat Dave Jones for California Attorney General.

Representing over 75,000 workers in eight locals throughout California and 300,000 workers nationwide in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, transportation, and airport industries

UNITE HERE! fights for dignity and better conditions for some of the most overlooked and underappreciated workers in the state.

“Dave Jones has a long and consistent record of fighting for working men and women,” said Enrique Fernandez, President, UNITE HERE! California State Council.  “He is the strongest candidate for Attorney General, the best qualified to resist Trump, will fight for immigrants’ rights, and will hold corporations accountable when they violate the rights of working men and women.”

“I am so proud to be supported by UNITE HERE!” said Jones. “UNITE HERE! gives a powerful and effective voice to workers who have been underpaid and exploited for far too long. As Attorney General I pledge to stand with them in enforcing California labor and health and safety laws to ensure that all working families are accorded respect and their collective bargaining rights are protected.”

Dave Jones has scored a number of major labor endorsements in his campaign, including the California Federation of Teachers, United Teachers Los Angeles, California School Employees Association (CSEA), Northern California District Council of Carpenters, Sailors Union of the Pacific and the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU).

In late February, Jones stunned the state’s political establishment when he not only denied the appointed incumbent Attorney General the endorsement by the California Democratic Party, but won the vote with a strong 56% majority from the over 2,800 Party delegates.

With $4.1 million cash on hand, Jones, who has run statewide successfully four times, is waging a winning statewide campaign.
