UFCW 324’s electoral endorsements are determined through a member-led process with advice from the California labor community. Members meet with candidates and determine who has demonstrated their commitment to workers’ futures, including higher wages, good quality jobs and health care, and the ability to stand up for themselves on the job.

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.

Cindy Allen is the clear choice for Long Beach City Council District 2 because UFCW members know she will fight for safe and responsible worksites, protecting peoples’ jobs, and making sure workers earn livable wages. Given her long ties to the community, we know that Cindy will work to strengthen the middle class and make sure our local economy works for everyone. We are proud to endorse Cindy Allen for Long Beach City Council.

UFCW 324 members are proud to stand with Herlinda Chico for Long Beach City Council District 4. Herlinda’s passion for bettering Long Beach is clear, from addressing homelessness, investing in public safety and activating public spaces. Over the course of her 25+ years of service, Herlinda has addressed and improved quality of life issues such as homelessness, crime, and public infrastructure, and aims to continue this work in a new term on City Council.

UFCW members are endorsing Suely Saro for Long Beach City Council District 6 because Suely knows the challenges we face in Long Beach, and how working people can come together to fight for a better future. As a labor organizer, Suely knows how important it is to have working people’s voices heard, and how elected officials can help UFCW members fight for fair wages and better working conditions. We’re proud to endorse Suely for Long Beach City Council District 6.

Tunua Thrash-Ntuk is the clear choice for Long Beach City Council District 8. Tunua’s passion for Long Beach’s working families resulted in creating good-paying jobs and UFCW members know that she will continue to ensure all of Long Beach is a good place to live, work and do business. Tunua’s experience in getting things done in Long Beach is why UFCW 324 members are proud to support her candidacy for Long Beach City Council District 8 this March.
