UAW ENDORSES CORT VANOSTRAN FOR CONGRESS

UAW is the second major labor union to weigh in for VanOstran in as many weeks

Webster Groves, MO.- Cort VanOstran, Democratic candidate for U.S. Congress, received the endorsement of the United Automobile, Aerospace, and Agricultural Implement Workers of America (UAW) today. This marks the second major labor endorsement in two weeks for the campaign.

“UAW is proud to endorse Cort in his bid for Congress in Missouri’s Second Congressional District. The current leadership in Washington and Jefferson City continues to turn their backs on working families. It is imperative that we support a candidate who will stand with us shoulder to shoulder in the fight for collective bargaining, safer workplaces, and better wages. Cort knows all families in our district do better when labor is strong,” said Vance Pearson, UAW, Director Region 5. “This year we will elect an unyielding labor advocate and defeat Proposition A.”

“I am honored to have the support of UAW and their nearly 1 million members, an organization that has relentlessly fought for better healthcare, wages, and benefits,” said VanOstran. “I stand with all members of the UAW in the fight to defeat Proposition A. It’s time for a representative who shows up and listens and fights for the middle class families of this district, not just the wealthy and well connected.”

VanOstran is a lawyer, a teacher, and a Democratic candidate for Congress in Missouri’s Second Congressional District.
