United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters (UA) Applauds President-elect Biden’s decision to nominate Marty Walsh to lead Department of Labor.

Following the announcement of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh as President-elect Biden’s intended nominee to be Secretary of Labor, UA General President Mark McManus hailed the pick as a strong victory for workers everywhere and for UA members in particular:

“On Day One, Marty Walsh will get to work fighting for American workers like the Brothers and Sisters of the United Association. Marty Walsh has a strong history in the Building Trades, receiving the UA’s National Elected Official of the Year Award in 2018. We could not be more thrilled with this pick,” said Mark McManus, General President of the United Association. “The Biden-Harris Administration is shaping up to be the most pro-worker White House we have ever seen. I have every confidence that, if confirmed, Secretary Walsh will work tirelessly to expand the rights of workers, grow good-paying union jobs, and ensure our members have a seat at the table. The entire UA is ready to get to work with Marty Walsh."
