Local 49 releases bi-partisan list of endorsements for MN state legislature

Local 49 Business Manager, Jason George, released the following statement regarding Local 49’s bi-partisan list of endorsements:
We believe that our members are the backbone of this country. We believe that support for our union and our jobs should not be a partisan issue.  We believe in working with and talking to all elected officials no matter the political party.  We have made great progress in building relationships with both democrats and republicans, and gaining their support for the work that we do.

 

We are proud to recommend to our more than 14,000 members their support for these candidates.  We might not agree on every issue, but these candidates have shown a willingness to put politics aside and listen to us and each other. In this time of political bickering and polarization, we need elected officials that are focused on bettering the lives of working class people. We need elected officials that are more interested in creating good paying union jobs than winning political fights. This round of endorsements reflects those values.
