Shannon Liss-Riordan receives first labor endorsements from six unions in her bid for U.S. Senate

Citing her long history of fighting for workers, and her track record of success, six IBEW locals announced their endorsement of Liss-Riordan today

Dorchester - Shannon Liss-Riordan, Democrat running for the U.S. Senate, received the first labor endorsements of the 2020 campaign for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts. The endorsements come from members of the IBEW System Council T-6 which include IBEW Local 2222, IBEW Local 2321, IBEW Local 2322, IBEW Local 2323, IBEW Local 2324, and IBEW Local 2325.

“Receiving these endorsements from the working men and women of six IBEW locals, especially this early in the campaign, means the world to me,” said Shannon Liss-Riordan. “I have always fought alongside working people, taking on big challenges, and I am so proud that the working people of the IBEW Council T-6 are standing with me. I am blown away by their willingness to back an outsider who believes that we need to break the cycle of politics in Washington.”

“Shannon’s long history of taking on powerful corporations, and winning, is the kind of experience our members need fighting for them every day in the United States Senate,” said Myles Calvey, President to the IBEW System Council T-6 and Business Manager of IBEW Local 2222. “We are proud to offer the first labor endorsement of a candidate for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts.”

This endorsement comes just four weeks after Liss-Riordan launched her campaign for the United State Senate. The IBEW locals in the System Council T-6 represent over 5,000 telephone workers in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
