Local 49 has endorsed Congressman Tom Emmer for reelection in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District.

“Congressman Emmer has been an advocate for family-supporting, union jobs, including his unwavering support of Davis-Bacon wages, which ensures highly skilled workers get paid what they earn,” Business Manager Jason George said. “His strong support for energy projects like the completion of Line 3 and the mining projects on the Iron Range, which would deliver critical domestic sources of copper, nickel and other minerals, should be commended. Local 49 is proud to work with him and endorse his campaign for reelection. We greatly appreciate his outreach and support of the operating engineers as a member of his caucus’s leadership team.”
