Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul on Tuesday received another endorsement from a labor organization: The Laborers International Union of North America.

The union cited the push by the Cuomo administration on a variety of major construction projects, including a refurbished LaGuardia Airport and JFK International Airport, spending on airports in upstate cities like Syracuse and Rochester as well as renovations at the state fairgrounds.

“Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Administration has literally transformed the state of New York,” said Armand E. Sabitoni, general secretary treasurer and New England regional manager of Laborers International Union of North America.

“Under his leadership the roads we drive on, the bridges we travel across, the airports we use and the trains we ride on are being modernized by workers who are well trained, are paid prevailing wages and have healthcare benefits. In a time when so many elected officials have forgotten the bread and butter issues that matter to building the middle class – Andrew Cuomo has stood tall for trades men and women throughout New York.”

The union nod comes as Cuomo has been consolidating support among labor leaders ahead of his push for re-election this year. Several labor groups left the Working Families Party as the organization prepared to endorse Cynthia Nixon over the governor in his Democratic primary.

Labor remains a key bloc in New York, the most unionized state in the country.
