WASHINGTON, May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following statement was released today by Sean McGarvey, President of the Building and Construction Trades Department:

"America's Building Trades Unions wish to congratulate both Gabriel Gomez and Ed Markey for their victories in yesterday's US Senate primary election in Massachusetts.  We also wish to acknowledge and salute our good friend and union brother, US Representative Stephen Lynch, for running an enviable campaign that was focused on the struggles and concerns of middle class working families in Massachusetts.

Within that same spirit, we look forward to meeting with both candidates to discuss their specific policy positions as they relate to jobs and growth for our members in the construction industry, which continues to be mired in a deep depression, as well as their overall vision as it relates to the strengthening the American middle class."
