The Council Cites LeVere Bolling’s Commitment to Project Labor Agreements, Apprenticeships, Infrastructure, and Fair Wages in their Endorsement
Union Leader Destiny LeVere Bolling today welcomed the endorsement of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades District Council 51 in her bid for Virginia’s House of Delegates – District 80.
The union cited Levere Bolling’s proven partnership advocating for trade union members across the Commonwealth as Communications Director of the Virginia AFL-CIO, as well as her plans to continue to fight for workers and their families once elected.
“Destiny’s hard work ethic, dedication, and support of construction workers across Virginia has always been steadfast and demonstrated not only in her words and knowledge but in her actions,” said District Council 51’s Political Director, Roxana Mejia. “Destiny’s commitment to the values our Union believes in has never waivered. Expanding Virginia’s registered apprenticeships, advocating for project labor agreements, fighting for prevailing wage, increasing wages, and enhancing benefits for workers in the construction industry are all priorities of Destiny’s. She will be a true voice for all working Virginians and a champion for providing an improved and more sustainable quality of life for our members. These are just a few essential reasons why we need Destiny in the General Assembly. She’s a true fighter for working people everywhere.”
“I am so very proud to have the endorsement of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades District Council 51,” said Destiny LeVere Bolling. “Our construction industry workers are essential to the success and growth of our Commonwealth and our ability to meet our evolving infrastructure needs. I will continue to fight for the livelihoods of the painters and trades women and men across the Commonwealth, as I have for years at the Virginia AFL-CIO. Workers and their families are everything to our communities and our economy, and as Delegate, I will fight to ensure their voices are heard, uplifted, and protected.”
