LIUNA Members Out in Force in Iowa to Elect Clinton Next President

“Clinton Stands Out as Tough and Tested Fighter”

Davenport, Iowa (January 30, 2016) – Iowa Members of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – today rallied in support of Secretary Clinton for President at events in Davenport and Des Moines.

LIUNA General President Terry O’Sullivan addressed the crowd; calling on members to make history in 2016 by mobilizing like never before.

“We are working class warriors who can be counted on to be a legion of volunteers and an army of voters,” said O’Sullivan. “We are going all in for Secretary Clinton, because she is a tough and tested fighter and no one will work harder to defend the livelihoods of LIUNA families.”

Secretary Clinton has backed transportation infrastructure projects that put LIUNA members to work; including a proposal that would create hundreds of thousands of jobs.

She is committed to fighting for good jobs building America’s energy infrastructure.

“When it comes to protecting our nation and securing our prosperity, there is no candidate I would rather have at my back than Hillary Clinton,” said O’Sullivan.

Clinton is an effective leader who will protect good wages and pensions, and strengthen our social security and healthcare.

Following both events, LIUNA members canvassed union members in the surrounding area to get out the vote for Hillary Clinton.
