Business Manager Comments  

         

The UA announced this week that they have endorsed Vice President Joe Biden for President.  The UA has done extensive research on the candidates available and they feel that Joe Biden stands with the UA on more areas than what President Trump does, including the NLRB (National Labor Relations Board), Multiemployer Pension Reform, Right to work laws, apprenticeship standards and most importantly protecting union labor!  Please do your research before voting and vote for those who best serve us!

The deadline to register to vote online or in person is Monday October 5th. The deadline to request a ballot by mail is Saturday October 31st.  Please call your local election board for any questions.  Please make sure you are registered if you are not already. 

 

Fraternally,

Brad P. Wendel
