House candidate David Carlucci on Monday was endorsed by the IBEW Local Union 363 in the crowded Democratic primary field for the 17th district.

Carlucci, a state senator, is running for the seat held by retiring Rep. Nita Lowey.

“With the labor movement and middle class under attack in Washington, D.C., we need a Congressman like David Carlucci who has a proven track record of delivering results and protecting middle class workers,” business manager Sam Fratto said in a statement.

“He has improved conditions for working families in New York by passing a $15 minimum wage law, 12 weeks of paid family leave, deductibility of union-dues, and policies to protect union members following the Janus decision. Working men and women need a champion like Carlucci who knows what middle class issues are and will bring those concerns to the national table.”

The union founded in Rockland County represents Hudson Valley workers in the electrical construction, voice, data and telecommunications industries.

“It’s an honor to receive the support of the hardworking men and women of IBEW Local Union 363,” Carlucci said. “As our next member of Congress, I will fight to protect workers’ rights to bargain, organize, and receive fair wages and benefits. The labor movement was founded in New York, and I plan to stand shoulder to shoulder with our union members against anyone on the federal level who puts their rights in jeopardy.”
