UFCW 324’s electoral endorsements are determined through a member-led process with advice from the Los Angeles County and California labor community.

The choices voters make this year will have long-lasting effects on working people, and we feel the candidates listed below will provide opportunities for and support working people and their families. These candidates have demonstrated their commitment to workers’ futures, including higher wages, good quality jobs and healthcare, and the ability to stand up for themselves on the job. 

UFCW 324 members are endorsing Rex Richardson for Long Beach City Mayor because Rex is the only candidate who is ready to collectively build a better Long Beach. Rex will ensure Long Beach has the jobs, housing and economic opportunities working families need to thrive. He’s put local businesses first, improved air quality and helped lead Long Beach’s much-heralded COVID-19 pandemic response. Rex will put Long Beach’s working families first and we’re proud to support his candidacy.
