Brothers and Sisters:

The International Administrative Committee is proud to announce TWU’s endorsement of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for President. As Election 2016 nears, we hope each and every one of you will consider this endorsement and the great privilege that comes with voting.

We hear from many of our members that you don’t like to be told for whom to cast your ballot. That’s fair. But there is simply too much at stake in this particular election for us to sit quietly on the sidelines any longer. The differences between the two remaining candidates are staggering, and we must spend the next five months doing everything we can to ensure that our movement will survive this election.

The Transport Workers Union of America stands in solidarity with the victims of the Orlando massacre and all of the families, loved ones, workers, and community members affected by this tragedy. We are reminded of the words of Martin Niemöller, who wrote:


First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist.
 


Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
 


Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Jew.
 


Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.


In an era of segregation, our union was founded on inclusion and we are proud of this long history of commitment to civil and human rights. Today, as always TWU stands as one regardless of race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, or nationality. We join with the proud chorus of voices around the world wishing for a full recovery for those injured.
