WASHINGTON, D.C. (Oct. 31, 2016) — At a time when 24-7 campaign coverage has devolved once again into a “controversy” about emails we don’t know who wrote or what they say, the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) has released a timely new video that helps America’s working families keep their eye on the ball: real issues that affect our families and nation.

The video reminds voters that Hillary Clinton has an ambitious plan to invest in infrastructure and rebuild America, while Donald Trump continues to support “right-to-work” for less.

 

In a message to rank-and-file members upon releasing this video, IUOE General President James T. Callahan writes:

“If you are anything like me, you probably don’t like politics very much. But make no mistake, powerful corporate interests are moving aggressively to gut our pensions, eliminate our collective bargaining rights, and tilt the playing field even further against the middle-class. If they take the White House, the union jobs that we hold dear will be threatened. The International Union of Operating Engineers has endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. She has a proven record of supporting issues that put Operating Engineers to work and benefit our families.

“Please keep this recommendation in mind as you make that all-important, personal decision. The stakes are high and our future depends on it. Thank you for your consideration.”

iuoe-for-hillaryThe International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) is a progressive, diversified trade union that primarily represents operating engineers, who work as heavy equipment operators, mechanics, and surveyors in the construction industry, and stationary engineers, who work in operations and maintenance in building and industrial complexes, and in the service industries.
