Big endorsement news left over from yesterday. The 19 International Unions in the Alliance for Economic Justice have voted to endorse John Kerry for President.
With this endorsement, the total number of Internationals supporting John Kerry individually or through the Alliance and the Building and Construction Trades Department increases to 34. This is the strongest expression of solidarity from the House of Labor for any candidate in this election year.
And lest we forget, God bless the International Association of Fire Fighters, who got the whole thing started!
Member Unions of the Alliance for Economic Justice include the Air Line Pilots Association, American Maritime Officers, Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers, Graphic Communications International Union, International Association of Iron Workers, Laborers’ Union, Machinists Union, Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way, Marine Engineers’ Beneficial Association, Office and Professional Employees Union, PACE International Union, Operative Plasterers’ and Cement Masons Union, Seafarers Union, Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Union, United Steelworkers of America, Teamsters Union, Transport Workers Union of America and United Food and Commercial Workers Union.
