United Brotherhood of Carpenters applauds selection of Marty Walsh for secretary of labor

Our parent organization, the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, has announced support of President-elect Biden’s selection of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh as Secretary of Labor.

“It’s been decades since a union member was appointed to run the Labor Department, and we’re pleased that such a talented and experienced union brother has been chosen to take on this responsibility in the Biden Administration,” the UBC stated. “Choosing Marty Walsh to lead the Labor Department sends a clear signal to working men and women that this administration will make sure our jobsites are safe, our pay is fair and our hard work is respected.”

North America’s Building Trades Unions and the AFL-CIO also applauded the nomination. Read their statements here and here.
