By BAC, Special for USDR
No presidential candidate is better qualified than Hillary Clinton to occupy the White House. Moreover, there is only one candidate – Hillary Clinton – who can lead American workers to triumph in the face of today’s hostile political climate, difficult financial times, and relentless attacks against the right to organize. That is why on September 8, 2015, the Executive Board of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC) voted unanimously to endorse Secretary Clinton as BAC’s candidate for President of the United States.
Said BAC President James Boland after the Board’s vote, “BAC members need both a fighter and collaborator-in-chief in the White House to create economic growth that works for everyone, not just a few. Secretary Clinton understands and champions the issues that concern our members most – from job creation and infrastructure investment to the value of apprenticeship and training programs among many others. Her values and priorities are our values and priorities, and she can count on the support of our members and union now and through the general election.”
The International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers, headquartered in Washington, D.C., is the oldest continuous union inNorth America and represents roughly 80,000 skilled masonry-trowel trades craftworkers in the United States and Canada, including bricklayers, tile setters, cement masons, plasterers, stone masons, marble masons, restoration workers, and terrazzo and mosaic workers.
