MILILANI—The statewide International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 142 Political Action Committee, upon the recommendation and concurrence of the ILWU Oahu Division Political Action Committee and the ILWU Hawaii Longshore Division, has endorsed Marilyn Lee’s candidacy for election in House District 36.

The ILWU Local 142 is Hawaii’s largest private sector union with nearly 18,000 members.  They include longshoremen, truck driver, heavy equipment operators, housekeepers, cashiers, X-ray technicians, salespersons and more.

“The ILWU is not only the largest private union in our state, but also a union with a social consciousness, and one that holds a respected place in the history of the labor movement in Hawaii.  I am proud to accept this honor,” said Lee.
