Shannon Liss-Riordan, the labor attorney running for state attorney general, continues to rack up union support. On Tuesday, Liss-Riordan’s campaign rolled out the support of SEIU Local 888, which represents 8,000 state, municipal and education workers in Massachusetts.

“Shannon Liss-Riordan’s dedication to fighting for civil rights, holding corporations accountable and protecting workers makes her the strongest candidate for Attorney General, and our choice for the job,” Tom McKeever, SEIU Local 888’s president, said in a statement. The union is based in Braintree.

In her own statement, Liss-Riordan, a Brookline resident, noted that the union’s members have been “on the frontlines of this pandemic, caring for our veterans, taking care of seniors and ensuring that critical government services continued to function at such a difficult time.”
