At a gathering of union leaders from various sectors at Ingeteam, Inc. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin AFL-CIO President Stephanie Bloomingdale announced the labor federation’s endorsement of Senator Tammy Baldwin for re-election in 2024. President Bloomingdale observed, “Tammy knows that the true strength of our American economy lies in the security and well-being of our workers. She understands and supports the role unions play in promoting that security. Senator Baldwin is a tireless champion of working people in Wisconsin. At each and every opportunity, Tammy Baldwin has stood up and spoken out to protect and promote a made-in-Wisconsin, made-in-America economy. She understands the undeniable connection between good jobs for our families and strong communities for our state.”
In her response, Senator Baldwin said, “Wisconsin workers are the backbone of our state and I’m laser focused on delivering them good paying Made in Wisconsin jobs. I’m honored to receive the Wisconsin AFL-CIO’s endorsement and proud to stand with them as we fight for more jobs, higher wages, and better benefits for all of our workers.”
