FRAMINGHAM – The Carpenters Union, Local 336 announced today, October 22, it is endorsing Magda Janus for Framingham City Council District 7.
“I have had the pleasure of meeting several members of the Carpenters Union who live in District 7 recently, and have had several conversations with their Union representatives. We discussed the topics of wage theft, prevailing wages, the importance of Union labor, and how all workers deserve fair wages, benefits, and safe working conditions. A few days ago I received the official endorsement from both the North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters and the Carpenters Local 336. To say I am thrilled and honored is an understatement,” said Janus.
“The Carpenters Union has a 130-year long history and over 28,000 members! If elected I will be proud to not only advocate on their behalf but also to meet as many of them as possible to develop a collaborative relationship that will last a lifetime,” said Janus. “Tradesmen are the best resource this country has and we need to make sure that new generations of skillful workers have a future in Framingham and in this country.”
Janus is one of two women vying for the 2-year City Council seat on November 2.
The current City Councilor Margareth Shepard has chosen not to seek a third term.
