LEESBURG, Va. – This morning, the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters Union (EASRCC) announced their endorsement of Attorney General Mark R. Herring’s re-election campaign. This follows the Attorney General’s announcement of the new Labor Protection Unit, and endorsements from prominent labor unions AFSCME, SMART, and UFCW Local 400 ahead of the June 8 Democratic primary.
“Attorney General Mark Herring has been making important progress on combating wage theft and worker misclassification in the Commonwealth of Virginia,” said William C. Sproule, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters. “Our union supports those who will commit to enforcement on these issues that harm too many workers across the region. We look forward to continuing to work with the Attorney General and other Virginia leaders to ensure the rights of workers are protected.”
“The work we do to establish protections for workers wouldn’t be possible without the support of dynamic unions like EASRCC,” said Attorney General Mark Herring. “Over the past eight years, we’ve increased worker stability, strengthened labor partnerships, and held corporations accountable. I’m proud to have their support in this fight.”
