Every day, I take those values with me to Beacon Hill to make sure hardworking men and women – whether they are in a union or not – are taken care of in our Commonwealth.
I’ve had the great opportunity, as ranking member of the Labor and Workforce Development Committee, to promote job creation, expose wage theft, and support policies benefiting workplace equality and safety.
Now, more than ever before, this job is about bringing people together, building consensus among diverse coalitions, and delivering results.”
-State Senator Patrick O'Connor
By putting people before politics, Senator O’Connor earned the support of the Massachusetts AFL-CIO and has been called “a champion for working men and women” by their President, Steven Tolman.
