Two More International Worker Advocacy Associations Back Scott Peters for Congress!


San Diego -- Two more international worker advocacy associations have endorsed Scott Peters for Congress in the new 52nd Congressional District, the campaign announced today. The Teamsters and the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers have added their names to the very long list of worker advocates backing Peters in his bid to unseat entrenched Republican incumbent Brian Bilbray. They join the AFL-CIO, the National Education Association, Service Employees International, and dozens of others.

“Members of these organizations have decades-long histories of supporting and advocating on behalf of middle-class Americans,” Peters said. “I’m proud to have their confidence and look forward to fighting for these hard-working men and women and their families in Washington.” 

The International Association of Teamsters boasts 1.4 million members worldwide. It is organized under 21 different divisions that that include almost every occupation imaginable in the both professional and non-professional, private and public sectors.

The International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Iron Ship Builders, Blacksmiths, Forgers and Helpers represents about 70,000 workers in the construction, shipbuilding, railroad, manufacturing, mining, and emergency medical service industries throughout the United States and Canada.
