Valatie, NY – Congressman John Faso today earned the endorsement of Local 294 of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters in his campaign for New York’s 19th Congressional District race against opponent Antonio Delgado. Established in 1903, Local 294 represents over 5,000 Upstate workers in a wide variety of industries including transportation, construction and healthcare.
“Since taking office, Congressman Faso has been a dedicated supporter of efforts to guarantee solvency of the New York State Teamsters Conference Pension & Retirement Fund. We thank him for his efforts and look forward to continue working with him to ensure our members’ retirement money is safe and accessible in the future.” – John Bulgaro, President and PEO, Teamsters Local 294
“It is a privilege to work with Local 294 on issues important to its members and their families,” said Faso. “I’m pleased to have earned their support in this election. I will continue to fight for our commercial vehicle operators, who have been and will continue to be a linchpin in America’s economic engine.”
In Congress, John Faso has advocated for the need to immediately address the crisis facing many multi-employer pension plans including the New York State Conference Pension and Retirement Fund. He helped lead a New York delegation effort to House and Senate leadership calling for a bipartisan solution before the end of the Congress.
