Baltimore/Washington Laborers' Endorse Cory McCray for State Senator, 45th District

Baltimore, MD (March 26, 2018) -- The Baltimore Washington Laborers' District Council (BWLDC), an affiliate of the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA), announced today of its endorsement of Cory McCray for State Senate in Maryland's 45th District. The BWLDC represents more than 7,000 LIUNA members who live and work in the Baltimore/Washington region, including approximately 1,000 members from the Baltimore City area. 

"Cory McCray fights for working families. As Delegate to Maryland's 45th district, he has led the charge in supporting policies that benefit working people and help build Baltimore’s middle class. As a journeyman electrician, Cory knows firsthand the struggles of working families in East Baltimore, which is why we think he’s the best choice for the Senate in District 45,” said David Allison, Business Manager of the Baltimore Washington Laborers’ District Council. 29060871_157055791648571_8959147556288007459_o.jpg

During the 2017 Maryland General Assembly Session, Delegate McCray stood with the BWLDC to pass House Bill 467, the Providing our Workers Education and Readiness Apprenticeship Act, which increases the use of Maryland certified apprentices on state capital and infrastructure construction.

“I am humbled to receive the endorsement of the BWLDC. Its vision and values work to bring equity to the workforce,” said Delegate Cory McCray. “My District’s basic needs have been ignored for decades. To know that the District Council stands with me in the fight to increase the living wage, the fight for quality and affordable healthcare, and the fight for those who have retired, that they might retire with dignity, is an honor I do not take lightly.”

Across the Baltimore-Washington region, the Council is actively endorsing and supporting candidates for elected office who are aligned with the values of its members. Today’s endorsement of Cory McCray is a continuation of that effort.
