Otsego, MN – The Laborers’ International Union of North America (LiUNA), Minnesota’s Infrastructure Union, recently endorsed Congressman Emmer’s reelection campaign in a bipartisan slate.
LiUNA was chartered in 1968 and serves the members, families, and retirees of five local unions: Local 563 (Minneapolis-Saint Paul Metro, Mankato and Saint Cloud Areas and North Dakota), Local 405 (Rochester and Southeast Minnesota), Local 1091 (Duluth-Superior, Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin), Local 1097 (Iron Range and Northern Minnesota), and Local 363 (City and County Employees Union of Minneapolis-Saint Paul and Greater Minnesota).
In their endorsement announcement, LiUNA said, “LIUNA members, retirees and families are proud to support leaders who share working people’s values and priorities.” These priorities include “creating family-sustaining jobs with living wages, including protecting the Davis-Bacon Act for construction workers, protecting working peoples’ freedom to negotiate a fair return on work, providing affordable health care and retirement security, and advancing all workers’ freedom to prosper and care for their families.”
“Thank you, LiUNA, for your endorsement,” said Emmer. “I look forward to continuing to be an advocate for the working people of Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin in D.C. so that all families have equal opportunities for growth and prosperity.”
