Casten Endorsed by IBEW Statewide in Re-Election Campaign

Downers Grove, IL — Today, U.S. Congressman Sean Casten (D-Downers Grove) announced that he has been endorsed by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Illinois State Conference, which represents tens of thousands of IBEW members employed across the state of Illinois.

“Rep. Sean Casten has always fought for working families and stood strongly with labor. Today, we are proud to stand with him and endorse him for re-election in Illinois 6th Congressional District,” said Bill Niesman, Chairman of IBEW Illinois State Conference.

Rep. Casten has previously been endorsed by thirteen other unions and also received the recommendation for re-election by the DuPage County Build and Construction Trades Council, which is composed of 30 unions throughout the Chicagoland area. Working people and labor unions across the 6th District are strongly backing Rep. Sean Casten and his record of fighting for working families.

“Strong unions are essential to a strong and equitable economy,” said Rep. Sean Casten. “In Congress, I’ve always worked to protect workers’ rights and am proud of my 100% voting score from the AFL-CIO. I’m honored to have the endorsements of a union that represents so many working people across the 6th District and our state.”

IBEW is committed to working hard to ensure their union and family members in the 6th District learn of their endorsements of Rep. Casten and turn out to vote in June’s primary.
