Headline: Election 2016 Boilermaker Endorsements

Informed union voters can make a big difference Nov. 8

THE CANDIDATES LISTED below have been selected by the leadership of the local lodges in their areas, along with the International Government Affairs Department, as those who will best support working families.

We know that how you vote is a personal decision. And we respect that decision. We also know that working families will make a huge difference in these elections – just as we did in the 2004, when many pro-worker candidates were elected to Congress and to state and local offices across the nation.

The union’s source of strength in the political arena is an informed union member who registers and votes. Please make your vote count in 2016!

How the candidates were chosen

We endorse candidates only after they have undergone close scrutiny. To earn our endorsement, a candidate must show a willingness to work with us — not by their statements, but by their actions. They must vote the way we need them to vote on key issues before Congress, and they must sit down with us to solve problems we are having in their district or state.

Please examine this list. If you do not understand why we are supporting a particular candidate, ask your local lodge leaders or the Government Affairs Department for clarification.
