The Pennsylvania State Building and Construction Trades Council announced their support yesterday.
“Stephen Zappala’s commitment to fairness and his proven track record of standing up to powerful corporations and corrupt public officials puts him in a class all his own,” said Frank Sirianni, President of the Pennsylvania State Building and Construction Trades Council. “He has stood with workers and held employers accountable for not respecting our rights and safety. He is a champion for people who work in hard hats, steel toed shoes and orange vests. We are proud to endorse him.”
“People who work for a living know I’ve stood up to the most powerful people, politicians and corporate special interests who have the money to hire an army of lawyers – so that our working and middle class families know the system isn’t rigged against them,” Zappala responded. “I am proud to wear the union label.”
The PA Building Trades 136,000 workers throughout the commonwealth and revealed last week that they’re backing Katie McGinty for Senate.
