Back To Front Page


U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign announced today the endorsement of United Steelworkers Local 2003, which has over 1,300 members employed at 42 companies throughout Northwest Indiana.

“Bernie Sanders has proven over and over to be a true friend of the American labor movement,” Local 2003 President Carlos Luna said. “He has demonstrated without a doubt that he is ready to fight for the hard working families of the United States.”

Last week, Sanders earned the endorsement of United Steelworkers Local 1999, whose members stand to lose 1,400 jobs with Carrier Corporation’s decision to ship jobs from Indianapolis to Mexico. Sanders previously denounced the decision by Carrier’s parent company, United Technologies, to move operations to Mexico.

The Sanders campaign is running strong in Indiana, with field offices open in Gary, South Bend, Fort Wayne, Bloomington, Evansville, Indianapolis, Lafayette, Muncie, and Terre Haute. The campaign has also started running four television ads in the state.
