PA-8: Santarsiero Gains Even More Labor Endorsements

Steve-SantarsieroState Rep. Steve Santarsiero announced yesterday the addition of two more labor endorsements to his PA-8 campaign.

Santarsiero’s campaign revealed they’ve received the support of AFSCME and Iron Workers Local 401.

“I left my job as a teacher to go to Harrisburg to stand up to the special interests and big corporations in order to fight for working people,” Santarsiero said. “In Congress I’ll continue to work to create jobs and make sure everyday Pennsylvanians are getting a fair shake.”

“We have no doubt that Steve Santarsiero will be a voice in Congress fighting for a living wage, working to protect American jobs and making sure seniors retire with dignity and security,” stated AFSCME District Council 88 Director Tom Tosti. “Steve has fought for us and now we are ready to fight for him.”

“Steve Santarsiero is the only candidate in this race with a real record of standing up for working people and actually fighting to protect Pennsylvanian jobs,” responded Local 401 Business Representative Charles Roberts. “We are ready to stand with Steve, roll up our sleeves, and work to make sure he’s our next Congressman.”

Organized labor has been coalescing behind the Santarsiero’s campaign for quite some time now.

In September and April of 2015, a number of other unions announced their support of his campaign. Altogether, Santarsiero is being backed by thirteen labor groups.

The 8th district consists of Bucks County and part of upper Montgomery County.
