United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers Endorses Governor Larry Hogan

The Hogan for Governor campaign today announced that the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers has voted to unanimously endorse Governor Larry Hogan.

This endorsement adds to the historic level of support for Governor Hogan from a coalition of current and former Democratic leaders, public sector and private sector unions. In addition to the Roofers and Waterproofers Union, Governor Hogan has been endorsed by the Laborers’ International Union of North America, the United Association of Plumbers, Pipefitters, Sprinklerfitters, Welders and HVAC Technicians (UA), the Maryland State Pipe Trades Association (MDPT), Steamfitters & Plumbers Local Union 486, Steamfitters & Plumbers Local Union 489, Fire Sprinkler Fitters Local Union 669, Plumbers Local Union 5, Steamfitters Local Union 602, International Association of Firefighters (IAFF), State Law Enforcement Officers Labor Alliance (SLEOLA).

“We believe Larry Hogan is the most experienced candidate in the race,” said Roofers and Waterproofers International President Kinsey M. Robinson. “After weighing the options, we believe Larry Hogan has the most solid plan for lifting Maryland’s economy and creating good jobs. Our members want a governor who believes in the American dream where hard work and fair play is rewarded with decent wages and a secure future for their families.”

During his first term, Governor Hogan has successfully enacted pro-growth, pro-worker policies that have boosted Maryland’s business climate, resulting in the creation of nearly 100,000 jobs, and significant wage growth for Maryland workers. After nearly a decade of more than 40 crushing tax increases, the governor has delivered $1.2 billion in tax, toll, and fee relief. Governor Hogan has also enacted legislation to support economic development, including the More Jobs for Marylanders Act to create jobs in the areas of our state that need them the most and the PRIME Act to help bring Amazon’s HQ2 to Maryland.

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers,” said Governor Hogan. “These hardworking men and women literally put a roof over Marylanders heads, and their critical support is a testament to the work our administration has done to ensure Maryland is a more affordable place to live, work and retire. The members of the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers have always been met by an open door and a seat at the table and that will continue. I look forward to working with them in my second term as we keep implementing pro-worker, pro-growth policies in our state.”
