PITTSBURGH, Oct. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The United Steelworkers (USW) released this statement today endorsing Mark Critz for Lieutenant Governor in Pennsylvania's 2014 Democratic primary election:
"We are pleased to announce the USW's support for Mark Critz as Lieutenant Governor. The USW worked with Critz when he represented southwestern Pennsylvania in the U.S. House of Representatives, and we're proud to endorse him again.
"During his time in Congress, Critz demonstrated his commitment to manufacturing and family-sustaining jobs. When Critz's district was redrawn, the middle class lost a reliable ally in Washington, but now he has a chance to once again serve the hard-working people of Pennsylvania.
"Critz knows the value of work and has a proven track record of backing industrial policies that create good-paying American jobs. The USW stands firmly behind Critz and his promise to stand up for working men and women in Pennsylvania."
The USW represents about 850,000 workers in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean in a wide variety of industries, ranging from glassmaking to mining, steel, oil, paper, tire and rubber to the public sector, service and health care industries. For more information: www.usw.org
