Clinton endorsed by SMART union
Source: TPM

SMART, the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers, will merge the Sheet Metal Workers' International Association and the United Transportation Union in January.

4. I too am mad at my union over it's endorsement

But Senator Clinton has favorite (son) daughter status with SMART. Hard to go against an in state candidate.
