Hawaii Building and Construction Trades Council And 11 Member Unions Endorse Brian Schatz for U.S. Senate

REPORT FROM THE CAMPAIGN FOR US SENATOR BRIAN SCHATZ - On Wednesday, the Hawaii Building and Construction Trades Council, a collection of construction trade unions, and ten of its member unions endorsed Senator Brian Schatz for Senate at a press conference at Kakaako Waterfront Park in Honolulu. The Council cited Schatz’s commitment to economic development, job creation, worker protection and tourism expansion in Hawaii among their reasons for choosing to endorse.

“Senator Schatz has been a friend to the construction community since his time as Lieutenant Governor, and we are proud to endorse him for the United States Senate,” said Council President Reginald Castanares. “His commitment to expanding tourism in Hawaii, as well as his dedication to growth while still protecting Hawaii’s vast natural resources, have made him the clear choice for unions that comprise the Hawaii Building and Construction Trades Council and their thousands of members.”

“I’m thankful to have the support of the Hawaii Building and Construction Trades Council, its unions, and their incredible membership,” said Senator Schatz. “I have worked with these groups throughout my career, and their success is integral to economic growth and development in Hawaii. The Building Trades Council has made ‘Build a Better Tomorrow’ its motto, and I could not agree more. Hawaii’s brightest days are still ahead if we have the right people working on our behalf in the United States Senate. I am grateful for the support, and I pledge to keep fighting to ensure prosperity and success in the future.”

Along with the Hawaii Building and Construction Trades Council, the following member unions are endorsing Senator Schatz:

  • Plumbers, Local 675
  • Elevator Constructors, Local 126
  • Drywall, Tapers, and Finishers, Local 1944
  • Glaziers, Local 1889
  • Boilermakers, Local 204
  • Painters and Allied Trades, Local 1791
  • IBEW, Local 1186
  • Heat and Frost Insulators, Local 132
  • Teamsters, Local 996
  • Roofers, Local 221
