MA Senate Race: Iron Workers Endorse Stephen Lynch for U.S. Senate


By New Hampshire Labor News | February 2, 2013 | Politics, Union

NHLN Editors Note: In what will be a highly contested race from the MA Senate seat vacated by Sen Kerry, the Iron Workers have already come out in support of Stephen Lynch. Lynch, being a union man himself knows and understand the issues that union workers and middle class families are dealing with right now.

***Iron Workers Endorse Stephen Lynch for U.S. Senate***

The International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers announced today that it supports Congressman Stephen Lynch in his campaign to represent Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate. The Union is committed to helping Lynch win the special election that follows John Kerry’s departure from the U.S. Senate to serve as Secretary of State.

Lynch, a South Boston native, graduated from his three-year Ironworker apprenticeship in 1976 and was elected President of Iron Workers Local 7, Boston, in 1985. He earned his legal degree while serving as the Local’s President and joined the Massachusetts State Legislature in 1994. Lynch was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2001, and he is prepared to serve the people of Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate.

1. The Bad Thing About Running A Union Person For Anything Is The Voters Will Reject Him Or Her ----

because they are too socialistic or progressive. American workers will probably never learn. They have not learned in 33 years since Reagan fired the air traffic controller. Falling union membership and falling wages and benefits seem to follow each other.
