Leadership is needed in Washington for Working Families 

Omaha, NE – Brad Ashford announced support from the Omaha and SW Iowa Building and Construction Trades Council today.

“I am thoroughly humbled by the support from the Building and Construction Trades Council,” Ashford said. “Working with my friends in the Labor movement we have made some great accomplishments with accessibility in apprenticeship programs and training, keeping the workplace safe, major construction projects and the right to collectively bargain. I look forward to continuing to build upon our successes and working with our friends in Labor as we build our community.”

“Ashford has a track record of working hard for working families, period,” Scot Albertson, President of the Omaha and SW Iowa Building and Construction Trades Council, said. “Our council and our membership works on most of the major projects going on in our area and putting Brad in Congress will continue to build upon our record of success and accomplishment for our community. He is someone who works to create collaboration and that is something that Washington sorely needs.”

Omaha and SW Iowa Building and Construction Trades Council represents local area unions that work in the construction field. Their affiliated locals represent over 3,000 working men and women and their families in the Second Congressional District.
