Annapolis, Md. – The United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipefitting Industry ("UA") has endorsed former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for President of the United States. "Hillary Clinton brings a unique blend of experience to the office of President of the United States," said Plumbers and Pipefitters Union General President William P. Hite in announcing the endorsement.
"She is a skilled diplomat and a tough negotiator, yet she also has great compassion for working families. She is committed to rebuilding our country's aging infrastructure, especially our water and waste water systems, and all facets of the energy sector, including pipelines, nuclear and natural gas. These are top priorities for the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters and for the whole country. I'm confident Secretary Clinton will provide the leadership to get the job done. She will help America become stronger, more competitive and create quality jobs in the process."
"Hillary Clinton has stood side by side with workers fighting for the right to organize and against harmful labor policies such as Right to Work," Hite said. He noted that in the end, "this election will come down to which candidate will work the hardest to resolve the persistent problems of income inequality and restore dignity and fairness in the workplace. Hillary Clinton knows that when unions are strong, America is strong. We are proud to endorse her for President of the United States."
The United Association was founded in 1889 and has over 410,000 members.
