The International Union of Operating Engineers Local 428 has announced its endorsement of Arizona Senate Democratic Leader David Schapira, D-Tempe, in his campaign for Congress in Arizona’s Ninth Congressional District.

“David has a proven record of delivering results for Arizona’s working families in the state Legislature,” said Raul Garcia Jr., business manager for IUOE Local 428. “We know that in Congress, David will continue to champion the issues that are important to us by fighting to build stronger schools, create quality jobs and protect Social Security and Medicare.”

The International Union of Operating Engineers represents over 400,000 workers in North America, including more than 3,000 current and retired Arizona workers. Primarily representing heavy equipment operators, mechanics, surveyors and engineers in the construction industry, the IUOE is the 10th largest AFL-CIO union.
