My members know that they can count on Congresswoman Newman to put working families above everything else. Local 512 is proud to endorse her for re-election,” said Juan Elvira, President TWU Local 512.
“When the pandemic shut down the trade show industry and our members lost paychecks and health care, Marie Newman gathered all of us outside McCormick Place to call on Washington to pass immediate and continued relief for our members. When she was sworn into Congress a few months later, she helped deliver on that promise. We thank Congresswoman Marie Newman for her commitment to workers and working families and we are proud to endorse her for re-election,” said Local 136 Business Manager Rob Fulton.
