IUNA Presidential Endorsement Announced
Washington, D.C. (June 8, 2023) – Brent Booker, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today:
LIUNA’s more than half-million strong members enthusiastically support President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ re-election. No Administration has demonstrated greater commitment to the men and women who build our nation than the Biden-Harris White House. With Biden at our backs, LIUNA members have more opportunities to build our infrastructure, better wages and benefits, and more secure futures.
Every decision President Biden has made, every policy he has adopted, and every piece of legislation he has pushed for has been done with consideration for and for the betterment of hard-working union laborers and our brothers and sisters in the trades. Biden runs on a record of creating hundreds of thousands of infrastructure jobs with family-supporting wages, pension relief for union members and their families, a historic update to strengthen Davis-Bacon prevailing wages, protecting federal workers’ union rights, raising service contract workers’ wages, and protecting Mail Handlers jobs through postal reform.
LIUNA’s endorsement follows a national poll of members and the unanimous vote of the LIUNA General Executive Board in support of President Biden’s re-election.
LIUNA members fight for what they believe in and for who they believe in and that means we will be mobilizing, knocking doors, and making calls to get out the vote for President Joe Biden. LIUNA could ask for no greater President than Joe Biden.
The half-million members of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – are on the forefront of the construction industry, a powerhouse of workers who are proud to build the United States and Canada.
