Manno Endorsed by International Union of Elevator Constructors


Montgomery County, MD – Today, Maryland congressional candidate (MD-6) and State Senator Roger Manno announced the official endorsement of the International Union of Elevator Constructors (IUEC). Founded in 1901 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and headquartered in Maryland, the IUEC represents more than 25,000 members in the United States and Canada.

“Senator Manno is a man of deep integrity, his commitment and never-ending work ethic is unparalleled,” said International General President Frank Christensen. “He understands how to move the economy in the right direction and keep people employed and these are just some of the reasons why we, as the IUEC, are incredibly proud to endorse Senator Manno for Maryland’s 6th U.S. Congressional District.”

Manno’s record as a progressive voice for economic empowerment is well-known throughout Maryland and the labor movement. Raising prevailing wages, preventing workplace fraud and wage theft, and increasing skills training through his landmark Apprenticeship Opportunities Act are among the many real accomplishments from a leader focused on infrastructure and growing the middle class.

“No state legislator in the country does a better job representing the interests of working men and women than Maryland State Senator Roger Manno,” said IUEC Director of Government Relations Vance Ayres. “This early endorsement is a reflection of our certainty that Senator Manno is the best candidate to fight for our members in the U.S. House of Representatives.”

“I am incredibly proud to receive the endorsement of the IUEC and the unprecedented solidarity of International General President Frank Christensen, Director Vance Ayeres, and so many IUEC members throughout the Nation,” stated Manno. “For more than a decade, we have worked together to forge real workforce opportunities, rigorous skills training, and project excellence in the Maryland construction sector and throughout North America. Our campaign for Congress builds on that work, and I’m excited for this opportunity.”
