PITTSBURGH – The United Steelworkers (USW) union today endorsed the reelection campaign of U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, Pennsylvania’s senior senator, who served in the chamber since 2007.

“Sen. Bob Casey is a staunch ally of working families, whether they live in Pennsylvania or anywhere across the United States,” said USW International President Tom Conway. “Time and again, he has proven his commitment to creating and saving good jobs, fighting for fair trade, ensuring quality, affordable health care, and preserving retirement security. He fights for us, and we intend to fight just as hard to get him reelected.”

Sen. Casey, Conway noted, was a champion of the $1.2 trillion bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which is already creating good-paying union jobs and helping to modernize the nation’s transportation, communications and utility systems. In addition, Casey consistently supports efforts to invest in manufacturing and bolster domestic supply chains.

The three-term senator also supports the Leveling the Playing Field 2.0 Act, designed to fight back against China’s predatory trade practices by updating the nation’s outdated trade rules, as well as measures to restore fairness to the nation’s tax code for workers and their families.

“Sen. Casey believes in growing our economy by putting the future back into the hands of working people, rather than in the hands of Wall Street billionaires,” said Bernie Hall, director of USW District 10, which includes 50,000 Steelworkers in the state of Pennsylvania. “Sen. Casey has proven that he is an advocate for workers’ rights, for strengthening Medicare and Social Security, and for ensuring higher wages for workers. We look forward to sending him back to the U.S. Senate for another six years.”

The USW represents 850,000 workers employed in metals, mining, pulp and paper, rubber, chemicals, glass, auto supply and the energy-producing industries, along with a growing number of workers in public sector and service occupations.
