The labor union 32BJ on Thursday endorsed Queens Democratic Assemblyman Francisco Moya for the New York City Council.

“Our members endorsed Francisco because of his history of standing up for his community in Queens, for immigrants and for all working New Yorkers during his tenure in the Assembly,” said 32BJ President Hector Figueroa.

“We know that he will be a voice for working people on the City Council and help keep our city a safe and welcoming home for working people and immigrants. Now more than ever, we need local government to stand up for those who are vulnerable and stand against the divisive rhetoric and anti-worker policies coming out of Washington.”

Moya is running in a contested primary against disgraced former state Sen. Hiram Monserrate, who was removed from the Senate following a domestic violence charge in 2009.

Both are seeking the seat being vacated by incumbent Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras-Copeland.
