Wisconsin Laborers’ District Council: Endorses Senator Tammy Baldwin for reelection

DeForest, WI –Senator Tammy Baldwin was endorsed for reelection by the Wisconsin Laborers’ District Council while attending a tour of their Apprenticeship and Training Center.   

“Our union is a jobs club and exists to better the lives of our members by collectively working for better wages, benefits, and working conditions.  We support candidates who help create opportunities for our members, and we couldn’t ask for a better friend than Senator Baldwin fighting on our behalf in Washington,” said Kent Miller, President/Business Manager of the Wisconsin Laborers’ District Council. 

“Senator Baldwin voted to make historic investments in our state’s infrastructure building our roads, bridges, renewable energy projects, and high-tech manufacturing projects with the passage of the IIJA, IRA, and CHIPS Act.  These investments are helping grow our economy and creating great-paying jobs and pathways to lifelong careers working in the building and construction trades.”

“Senator Baldwin championed the passage of the Butch Lewis Act, helping save the pensions of thousands of retirees throughout Wisconsin, ensuring that they can retire comfortably and with dignity.”

“Wisconsin unions are the backbone of our state, and working people in every community deserve a Senator who’s committed to bringing home Made in Wisconsin jobs and building a stronger economy that works for us all,” said Senator Tammy Baldwin. “It is an honor to receive the support of the hardworking men and women of the Wisconsin Laborers’ District Council, and I promise that I am going to keep standing shoulder to shoulder with them in the fight for more jobs, higher wages, and better benefits for all of our workers.”
