Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
The Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) is celebrating 133 years of union strength. Like the members of all our affiliates, the workers who are part of IUPAT built America and remain committed to her success. “Joe Biden has supported the IUPAT’s post-election organizing push for robust federal infrastructure spending matched with the passage of pro-worker labor law reform that could level the playing field for labor unions in the United States. The IUPAT is aiming to fortify the power of workers in both union membership and market share, as well as a demand to fund jobs throughout the country that rebuild and repair our infrastructure for years to come,” said IUPAT General President Kenneth Rigmaiden.
