RENO, NV – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) joined Nevada AFL-CIO President Liz Sorenson, Executive Secretary-Treasurer Susie Martinez, and Nevada AFL-CIO union workers at their 67th Constitutional Convention.
“Hardworking Nevada families are able to pursue the American Dream thanks to the efforts of unions and organized labor,” said Senator Rosen. “As a former union member, I know first-hand the incredible good that organized labor does for workers across Nevada, and I’ll always fight for the respect, dignity, and support they all deserve.”
As a former Culinary Union member, Senator Rosen has been a strong advocate for Nevada’s workers. Earlier this year, Senator Rosen helped introduce the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, which would strengthen protections for workers’ right to organize a union and bargain for higher wages, better benefits, and safer working conditions. She also helped pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the CHIPS and Science Act, and the Inflation Reduction Act, working to bring more good-paying union jobs to Nevada. Last year, she invited Marc Ellis, President of the Communication Workers of America (CWA) Local 9413 in Northern Nevada, as her State of the Union virtual guest to highlight the good-paying jobs being created for broadband deployment from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
