More than 1,000 union carpenters from the North Atlantic States Regional Council and the New York City District Council of Carpenters packed a hall in Bethpage on Long Island on Saturday to show support for Tom Suozzi. In addition to NASRCC and NYCDCC leaders Joe Byrne and Joe Geiger, UBC General Doug McCarron was on hand as was UBC First General Vice President Tom Flynn and Eastern District Vice President Bill Waterkotte.
Suozzi is seeking to represent the 3rd New York Congressional District, bringing his common-sense approach back to Washington, where he was formerly a leader of the bi-partisan Problem Solvers Caucus.
“We need leaders who are willing to fight for us in Washington. For 30 years, Tom has been fighting for the men and women of the building trades. When our members are working hard to build our communities here on Long Island, we need to know we have someone in Washington who can make sure we have a voice – and that’s Tom Suozzi,” said Joe Byrne, EST, NASRCC.
Organized labor needs leaders in Washington who won’t just offer passive support for unions … we need someone who can lead the charge for blue collar workers. As congressman, Tom will fight for more union jobs and fair wages that will guarantee security for our families. He’ll champion opportunities to develop infrastructure that will bring new job opportunities for those just entering the workforce and those with decades under their belts.”
The special election is being held on Tuesday, February 13, but early voting is now underway. After warming up their vocal chords, groups of members, leaders and Suozzi hit the streets to knock on doors and boost the campaign.
