Lee Earns Endorsement of LiUNA Local 872


May 14, 2024

Representing 3,500 construction workers and public service employees

LAS VEGAS — Today, Congresswoman Susie Lee (NV-03) announced that she has received the endorsement of the Laborer’s International Union of North America, Local 872, which represents 3,500 construction workers and public service employees across southern Nevada.

“LiUNA Local 872 exists because of its members, and we are committed to advocating for economic development and opportunities across the community. Susie Lee has been with us in every step of that fight, and we are proud to endorse her campaign for re-election,” said Tommy White, Business Manager and Secretary Treasurer, LiUNA Local 872. “Susie has fought to bring manufacturing and jobs back to Nevada, and she is prioritizing made-in-America policies that keep our members working. Hardworking Nevadans can trust that Susie is the best choice for their interests in 2024.”

“From transforming the Strip to breaking ground on historic high-speed rail, Local 872 is on the front lines of building the future of Nevada today, and I’m honored to have their endorsement,” said Susie Lee. “Growing up the daughter of a steel plant engineer, I saw firsthand how transformative these kinds of jobs can be for working families. That’s why I’m committed to protecting paychecks, benefits, and the right to organize, and why I’ll continue fighting for hardworking Nevadans.”

Susie knows that investing in the clean economy of the future means investing in southern Nevada’s workforce. Last Congress, Susie helped negotiate and pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act, which are bringing good-paying jobs back to southern Nevada, and ensuring that union labor is at the core of infrastructure and clean economy projects.

Susie Lee represents Nevada’s Third Congressional District in Congress, where she has been named the most bipartisan member of Congress and one of the most independent voices in Washington. Susie first ran for Congress because she grew up in a working family of ten, and she wanted the next generation to have the same kinds of opportunities she had growing up. That’s why Susie passed historic investments in our infrastructure, our economy, and in addressing the climate crisis. Before running for Congress, Susie spent her career leading organizations dedicated to improving the lives of Nevada’s most vulnerable children and families, including the leading statewide dropout prevention program, Communities in Schools of Nevada.
