International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Endorses Vice President Joe Biden for President of the United States of America
[Washington, D.C.] July 2nd, 2020 - Today the Executive Board of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC) endorsed Vice President Joe Biden for President of the United States of America.
“Vice President Biden has been a stalwart supporter of the labor movement and working people his entire career,” said BAC International President Tim Driscoll. “He is a true believer in unions and their right to organize and bargain collectively on behalf of working people in America. He has demonstrated his commitment to protecting workers’ right to join a union and those unions’ right to effectively advocate for safe workplaces and fair wages. Critically important during this global pandemic, Vice President Biden has a proven record of defending and expanding access to healthcare, and he has fought to protect the pensions and retirement security that our members have spent decades deferring wages to create.”
“Times are tough in this country right now. When times were tough in the Great Recession, Joe Biden worked with a calm and steady hand to successfully bring our economy back from the brink of ruin – with a constant focus on the interests of the hard-working people like our members who make up the middle class. His career-long support for us has earned him our support in return, and we are proud to stand with him now as we rebuild this country together.”
