OPCMIA Congratulates Hakeem Jeffries On His Election as House Democratic Leader

On behalf of the OPCMIA’s nearly 50,000 members, I want to congratulate Rep. Hakeem Jeffries on being elected House Democratic Leader. We also congratulate Rep. Katherine Clark and Rep. Peter Aguilar on their elections as House Democratic Whip and House Democratic Caucus Chair, respectively.

Rep. Jeffries and the entire new leadership team are fighters for working families and tireless supporters of workers’ rights and collective bargaining. Our members know they are on our side and we will do everything possible to ensure their success.

This is an historic day and we welcome this dynamic leadership team that reflects the American people in all of our diversity, and that shares the values that unite us all: freedom, justice, equal opportunity and democracy. We look forward to working with them and supporting their efforts in the next Congress.
