“The re-election of Barack Obama represents a major victory for this nation and working people.
“President Obama has spent the past four years fighting to level the playing field for the American middle class. He has stood with working people and the labor movement time and time again on workers’ rights, workplace health and safety, job creation and economic growth. Today, that fight continues. Now it is time to stand with our President, united, to pursue policies which create jobs, strengthen the middle class, close the gap between the rich and poor, and fortify this nation’s labor laws.
“As is always the case, the labor movement played an integral role in determining the outcome of this election. Joining with other union members from throughout the labor movement, thousands of BCTGM members from coast to coast went door-to-door, manned phone banks and volunteered for labor’s massive get-out-the-vote effort.
President Obama, by word and deed, certainly has earned the trust and support of the members of the BCTGM. We look forward to continuing our work with President Obama and our elected representatives in Congress toward a better, fairer, more prosperous America.”
