Beaver-Lawrence Central Labor Council unanimously recommends Erin McClelland for Pennsylvania AFL-CIO endorsement
Hours after releasing the endorsements of four prominent Allegheny County State Representatives, presumptive Democratic nominee for the Pennsylvania 12th Congressional District Erin McClelland, was unanimously recommended for statewide AFL-CIO endorsement by the Beaver-Lawrence Central Labor Council. This is the second unanimous labor council vote in support of McClelland’s candidacy, and further evidence of McClelland’s strength as the consensus Democratic nominee for the PA 12th.
“I’m honored to have the continued support of working men and women from across the district,” said McClelland. “A unanimous recommendation from the Beaver-Lawrence CLC means something special to me because I feel at home in Beaver County. It reminds me of the Allegheny Valley and the people I grew up with who struggle every day, but persevere due to the hard-won victories of organized labor to secure good wages that support great families.”
