1199SEIU commends Sen. Schumer’s leadership

March 20, 2024

“1199SEIU stands behind the leadership of Senator Chuck Schumer in his call for new elections in Israel.  Being a leader means putting politics aside, saying what needs to be said, and acting according to one’s values.  The deplorable situation in Gaza and the political environment in Israel have implications far beyond the region and are of grave concern to millions of Americans.  We are proud to have a Majority Leader who is unafraid to speak out on controversial issues in the pursuit of justice and peace.”
