A message from TCU President Bob Scardelletti – 2016 Presidential Election

The upcoming presidential election presents one of the starkest choices for union workers in our lifetimes.

Hillary Clinton has proudly stood with union workers throughout her career. Donald Trump says he’s pro-worker – but everything in his public life suggests the opposite.

It is no accident that every major labor union in America, including TCU/IAM, has endorsed Hillary. She has a lifetime record of standing with unions against right-wing Republican attempts to weaken us.

Most importantly, if elected President, she will appoint pro-worker leaders to the agencies that directly affect our jobs – the Federal Railway Administration (FRA), the National Mediation Board (NMB), and the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB). The prospect of Donald Trump stacking these agencies with pro-business, anti-labor cronies is truly frightening, and dangerous to our job security and safety.

As a senator and now as a presidential candidate, Hillary supports the fundamental right for workers to organize and collectively bargain for better wages, benefits, and working conditions. She is committed to expanding Amtrak, public transit, and railroad infrastructure — advocating $275 billion in transportation investments. That spending translates to more good jobs for our members. Also, unlike Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton rejects so-called “Right-to-Work” laws.

Trump must be stopped. And that means all union members must vote for Hillary Clinton as president.
