OBAMA-UAW
(2008-06-11)
(wgvu) - The United Auto Workers international
executive board has endorsed Democrat Barack Obama for president.
UAW President Ron Gettelfinger says yesterday that Obama has
given the country a positive vision for a better America and
concrete plans to achieve it.
Gettelfinger notes the Illinois senator has pledged to rebuild
the country's manufacturing base and assist the auto industry.
The UAW represents more than one million active and retired
workers in automobile manufacturing, aerospace, construction
equipment, health care, higher education and other industries.
The endorsement continues organized labor's swing over to the
Democratic presumptive nominee.
