A group of challengers running as “Hackensack United for Progress” for city council has gotten another major union endorsement.
The Bergen County Building and Construction Trades Council endorsed the entire five person Hackensack United ticket on Friday.
It is at least the second major union endorsement for the Hackensack United ticket. The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters, claiming over 40,000 members, endorsed the Hackensack United ticket last month.
Hackensack’s municipal election is next Tuesday, May 9th. Candidates running under the tickets of Hackensack United and Hackensack Strong seek to defeat the Labrosse Team, a ticket of mostly incumbents including current mayor John Labrosse and deputy mayor Kathy Canestrino.
