Labor union honors Kosierowski

Work during pandemic acknowledged

TAYLOR, Oct. 8 – The United Food and Commercial Workers Union 1176 has honored state Rep. Bridget M. Kosierowski for her advocacy and work to advance legislation that prioritized health and safety initiatives for essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to her role as a legislator, Kosierowski, D-Lackawanna, was appointed to the PA COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force. In that role, she aided in ensuring essential workers were provided earlier access to vaccinations, as well as on-site clinics at the workplace.

“Our essential workers bravely answered the call, especially at the beginning of the pandemic,” Kosierowski said. “While it’s a great honor to be acknowledged for my efforts both legislatively and on the task force, it pales greatly to the sacrifices many working on the front lines made in service to others -- and in many cases, sacrifices that are continuing as we work our way toward a recovery.”

The union honored Kosierowski on Monday, Oct. 4, in Montgomery County. More about the UFCW 1176 can be found here.
