Statement from Kevin Munoz, Spokesperson for Biden-Harris 2024 Campaign:
“Joe Biden has spent his first term building an economy from the middle out and bottom up, not the top down trickle down of the past. His agenda is leading a manufacturing boom that is creating good union jobs. He is the most pro-labor president in American history.
“That’s because he believes in the dignity of work, and in stark contrast to the MAGA Republicans running for president, he knows that workers deserve more rights, not fewer. To build an economy where everyone has a fair shot to succeed, we need strong unions.
“He’s had the backs of union workers his entire career, and hours after he launched his reelection campaign, labor leaders are stepping up for him.
Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), and the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental, and Reinforcing Iron Workers (IW) have all endorsed Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for reelection this morning.
“This afternoon, President Biden will address the North America’s Building Trades Unions Legislative Conference in his first remarks since announcing he is running for a second term.
“The president often says the middle class built this country, and unions built the middle class. He is proud to have America’s union workers and labor movement behind him in this fight for freedom and democracy.”
