The Operative Plasterers and Cement Masons International Association Locals 8, 29 and 592 are supporting the re-election of Gov. Chris Christie.
"We need a governor who can keep costs of living in New Jersey within the means of a blue-collar worker," wrote Marc Gallo, president of the union's tri-state conference. "Our wages are a reflection of what we must earn in order to provide the basic necessities for our families; Chris Christie understands our need for property tax control and job growth."
This is the fourth endorsement Christie has received from a state trade union. Earlier this year the governor got the nod from the Laborers International, who were followed by the Plumbers and Pipefitters and Operating Engineers.
Christie was hoping to run the table on the state's 15 trade unions, but earlier this week the carpenters union decided not to endorse Christie because of his veto of a bill that could have meant more union jobs on public works projects.
Several sources have verified that other trade unions will fall in line behind Christie as the race wears on.
