Candidate Pledges to Always Be an Ally to Working Men and Women
Mayoral candidate Paul Vallas is releasing the following statement thanking three major construction unions for endorsing his campaign this morning. The announcement came from the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 134 and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 9.
“Chicago is a union city and I’ve always had great respect for the role that organized labor plays in leveling the playing field and making sure that the investments we make in our communities are always shared by the middle class and working families,” said Vallas. “I’m thrilled to earn these endorsements today from three of our city’s leading labor organizations, and as Mayor I will work hard to create more opportunities for working men and women.”
