Wauwatosa – Teamsters Joint Council 39 has officially endorsed Chris Rockwood‘s campaign to become the United States Representative to Wisconsin’s 5th Congressional District. Teamsters Joint Council 39 comprises all of the local Teamsters Unions in Wisconsin. The endorsement cites Rockwood’s “consistent shared commitment to organized labor, the collective bargaining process and the ongoing fight for worker’s rights.”

Rockwood is particularly gratified to have the Teamsters’ support. “I’m extremely proud to receive this endorsement,” he said. “Having been raised in a union family, I appreciate the fact that creating a democratic workplace is a fundamental goal of organized labor. My dad was a union man, and he deserved a voice in his own destiny. So I’m happy to say that I stand with the workers.”

The general election for Wisconsin’s 5th Congressional District is November 4, 2014.
