Statement of ILA President Harold J. Daggett Supporting Reelection of Congressman Robert J. Menendez to New Jersey’s Eighth Congressional District

NORTH BERGEN, N.J. – The International Longshoremen’s Association is proud to support and endorse Congressman Robert J. Menendez for re-election to New Jersey’s Eighth Congressional District. The ILA and all organized labor could not have a stronger ally in Washington than Rob Menendez.

“From his current Congressional posts including serving on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee to his previous experience as a Commissioner of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Congressman Rob Menendez helps protect the jobs and the interest of our ILA New Jersey members and their families,” said ILA President Harold J. Daggett. “The ILA encourages all our members and their families residing in the Eighth Congressional District, which includes most of Hudson County, the East and North Wards of the City of Newark in Essex County, and the City of Elizabeth in Union County, to support and campaign for the reelection of Congressman Rob Menendez.”

“I am proud to serve as a voice for dedicated ILA members and workers everywhere,” said Congressman Rob Menendez. “ILA members play a critical role in our supply chains and propel our nation every single day. We must support their critical work. I will always be there to fight for and listen to our unions. In Washington, we will continue to deliver federal funds for our district and for infrastructure investments that will continue to grow the port. With support from incredible union organizations such as ILA, we continue to affirm our record for working families. I look forward to continuing to serve and collaborate with our brothers and sisters in organized labor.”

ILA represents over 85,000 maritime workers and is proudly headquartered in New Jersey’s Eighth District.
