ANDOVER, MA – Citing Dan Koh’s “focus on job creation and wage growth,” Pipefitters Local 537 today endorsed Koh in the race for the 3rd Congressional District. Local 537 represents close to 3,000 members and is the eighth union endorsement that Koh has received, more than any other candidate. Koh has also been endorsed by Laborers Local 175, IBEW Local 96, Laborers Local 609, IUEC Local 4, IUOE Local 4, Laborers Local 88, and Wreckers Local 1421.
“We are supporting Dan because of his focus on job creation and wage growth,” said Business Manager of Local 537 Brian Kelly. “Our members know that Dan will work to generate economic opportunity and make sure that everyone has access to a good-paying job.”
“I am grateful to have Local 537’s endorsement,” said Koh. “In Congress, I will fight for the working families of the Third District. We need to stand up against the right-wing Republicans’ attacks on unions. That’s why I support protecting collective bargaining rights, strengthening workplace protections, and investing in workforce development programs.”
