ANDOVER, MA – Laborers Local 39, based out of Fitchburg, today endorsed Dan Koh in the race for the 3rd Congressional District. Local 39 represents over 300 members and is the thirteenth union endorsement that Koh has received, more than any other candidate. Koh has also been endorsed by Plumbers and Gasfitters Local 12, AFSCME Local 1705, Laborers Local 243, IUPAT DC 35, Pipefitters Local 537, Laborers Local 175, IBEW Local 96, Laborers Local 609, IUEC Local 4, IUOE Local 4, Laborers Local 88, and Wreckers Local 1421.

“We are excited to endorse Dan,” said Business Manager of Local 39 David Leger. “Dan will work to create good jobs and expand access to quality healthcare. Our members know that Dan will be a strong advocate for workers.”

“I am proud to have Local 39’s support,” said Koh. “For far too long, elected officials have taken unions for granted and abandoned working families. This is wrong. Union families are the backbone of our communities. We need to protect workers’ rights and make sure that all workers receive fair compensation.”
