Communication Workers of America Endorse Tom O’Halleran

Sedona, AZ – Democrat Tom O’Halleran announced today that the Arizona State Council of the Communications Workers of America have endorsed him in his race for Congress in Arizona’s first district, which reaches from Flagstaff and the Navajo Nation down to the Tucson suburbs of Marana, Saddlebrooke, and Oro Valley.

“Our members in Arizona are hardworking telecommunication workers, wireless industry workers, public employees, flight attendants, and ground service flight agents, and we are proud to endorse Tom O’Halleran to represent Arizona’s 1st Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives,” said CWA local representative Shad Ercanbrack. “Tom believes in working families, and he believes in the basic American value of fairness, which is under attack by a Congress that is bought and sold by special interests and rich corporations.  Tom knows that people who work for a paycheck to raise their children deserve better than they’re getting from this Congress. Whether it’s protecting Social Security and Medicare, raising the minimum wage or fighting for tax fairness for working families, Tom will vote to create a stronger country.”

“I am grateful to receive the endorsement of the Communications Workers of America,” said O’Halleran. “I support the right of working people to organize and bargain collectively for decent wages and benefits. I thank the CWA for their endorsement and look forward to continuing to work with them to improve the lives of our children.”
