Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Endorse President Biden for Second Term
[Washington, D.C.] – Today the Executive Board of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC) endorsed Joseph R. Biden for his second term as President of the United States.
Since Joe Biden took office, workers have experienced unprecedented support from the President of the United States. BAC members are directly benefiting the enactment of the 2021 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the Inflation Reduction Act, and the CHIPS and Science Act, which all put BAC members to work and include language to give strong incentives ensuring future investments in American manufacturing will be built by skilled craftworkers and will support local communities.
Working families, including BAC members, also are benefiting from the pension reforms President Biden ensured were in the American Rescue Plan, and then protected that program during the recent GOP attempt to defund it during the debt ceiling debate. President Biden has also led the fight to strengthen Davis-Bacon prevailing wage coverage and promote the use of Project Labor Agreements.
“Union workers across the United States have a clear advocate in the White House with Joe Biden,” said BAC President Tim Driscoll. “He not only regularly meets with unions on a variety of issues, but actively supports and promotes worker organizing to strengthen the middle-class. In all his legislative efforts involving construction, he ensures workers will receive fair wages and benefits, with safe working conditions.”
“President Biden has kept all his 2020 campaign promises and then some, making him the most pro-labor President of our lifetimes,” President Driscoll continued. “It is because of his proven track record as a friend of BAC members, and all working families, that we heartily endorse the Biden-Harris team for four more years.”
