Mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio has picked up a key endorsement from the city's largest labor union.

Local 1199 SEIU, which represents more than 200,000 city workers, is endorsing the public advocate in the highly competitive Democratic primary.

Its president says de Blasio is a champion of working families.

De Blasio is one of the most liberal contenders in the race.
