IUPAT 82 only endorses candidates that have workers’ best interest in mind. We are sending a clear message to our communities that we will only support leaders who stand up for workers, and by extension, supports the growth of the 21st century middle class.

Three of our endorsed candidates this year in the state of Minnesota are State Senator John Hoffman, State Representative Ginny Klevorn, and State Representative Mike Sundin.

BM/ST Terry Nelson shares his thoughts on each candidate:

“As the senator for district 36, John Hoffman is a proven leader who stands up for workers. Thanks to Senator Hoffman’s leadership, DC 82 and the FTIUM have launched our revolutionary PSEO program, giving a real pathway to lifelong careers to youth in Minnesota. That’s the kind of dedication he brings to the job and that’s why we’re proud to endorse Senator John Hoffman for re-election.”

“As the representative for District 44A, Ginny Klevorn is a proven leader who stands up for workers. Ginny is no stranger to a fight and has been a strong advocate for workers, walking with our members on picket lines. That’s the kind of leadership she brings to the job and that’s why we’re proud to endorse Representative Ginny Klevorn for re-election.”

As the representative for district 11A, Mike Sundin is a proven leader who stands up for workers. As chair of the Labor Committee, Mike has always had working people first and foremost in his work as a legislator and that’s why we’re proud to endorse our retired member, Representative Mike Sundin for re-election.”
 
As the election approaches, all candidates will need volunteers to help get them votes. IUPAT 82 members should consider the opportunity to activate for candidates who support them.
