Midwest EPA employees union endorses Rashida Tlaib for Congress


CHICAGO (July 28, 2020)--The American Federation of Governmental Employees (AFGE) Local 704, which represents nearly 1000 Environmental Protection Agency employees in the Midwest, announced on Tuesday their endorsement of Rashida Tlaib in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District in the August 4 Democratic primary election. Following is a statement from AFGE Local 704 President Nicole Cantello:

“The mission of the Environmental Protection Agency has been under attack in the Midwest since the beginning of the Trump administration, but we have had a fearless advocate standing alongside us the entire time--Representative Rashida Tlaib. We are pleased to announce our endorsement of her in the primary election. Rep. Tlaib has been a champion for EPA employees as top Trump administration officials have attempted to strip away our basic rights. She has fought for environmental justice, not only in her district, but across the six states and 35 Tribal Nations that our union members are tasked with protecting. We need strong advocates in Washington who will defend human health and the environment in tandem with the EPA, and Rep. Tlaib is exactly that.”
