Re-elect Dan Lipinski Congressman


     Congressman Notches More Labor Endorsements Following Last Week’s from AFL-CIO   

January 17, 2018

U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-IL) today announced endorsements from two additional labor unions in his reelection campaign for Congress. The Third District Congressman was endorsed by the Illinois AFL-CIO last week.

The 125,000 member Transportation Division of the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail, and Transportation Workers (SMART TD) and 44,000 member Transportation Communications Union/ International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers have formally announced their support for Lipinski.

“You have promoted rail safety and union rights and worked to deliver real infrastructure investments in Chicago’s rail yards,” said Robert A. Scardelletti, National President of the Transportation Communications Union/IAM, in the endorsement of Lipinski. “We look forward to continuing to work with you to raise wages, improve safety, and protect the retirement security for America’s working families.”

Lipinski’s advocacy for working men and women was also praised by John Risch, National Legislative Director for SMART TD. “You have been a long-time advocate of railroad workers and their families, strong investments in passenger and freight rail service in Chicago, and federal legislation that would improve rail safety,” Risch observed.

“I am proud of these endorsements,” Lipinski said. “I will continue to fight for federal resources that create and sustain good-paying jobs for Third District constituents, improve our region’s transportation infrastructure, and keep America moving forward.”
