WASHINGTON (September 29, 2014). Elissa Silverman has just received the endorsement of the LiUNA! Baltimore/Washington District Council and Public Employes Laborers' District Council. LiUNA! BWLDC is one of the largest unions in the area, encompassing Locals 657, 572, 11, and 710, and representing more than 6,300 members.
As Orlando Bonilla, Business Manager of BWLDC explained, "With the costs of housing and health care continuing to rise, and many D.C. workers facing stagnant wages or employment insecurity, we need elected officials who appreciate the challenges facing working families, and who will support their struggles for fair treatment and family-wage jobs."
