Dingell endorsed by the real Steelworkers
The United Steel Workers (USW) stood up for the man who has stood up for the working class for half a century and formally endorsed Congressman John Dingell in his re-election bid for Michigan’s 15th Congressional District on Tuesday.
The United Steelworkers represent 1.2 million members and retirees nationally. USW workplaces are found in nearly every sector of the North American economy, from metals, manufacturing, paper, glass rubber, forestry products, chemical industry, rubber, health care, pharmaceuticals to public services, mining and energy and utilities.
“I am very pleased to have once again earned the endorsement from the Steelworkers,” Dingell said in acknowledging the honor. “I look forward to continuing to work with the Steelworkers to fight for working families in Michigan.”
The Steelworkers’ endorsement should put to rest the attempt by Dingell’s opponent, teabagger Republican Rob Steele, to try and fool people into believing he has the endorsement of the USW union.
He has taken to calling his campaign workers “Steelworkers” in an apparent attempt to con people into believing he has the support of actual Steelworkers. He will claim it’s just a play on his name, but Steele has a serious problem with the truth.
