PRESS RELEASE - “Voters have spoken. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s national victory is a huge win for working families in Texas.

“This election has a union label on it. Unions mobilized in Texas and around the nation for economic justice and, in coalition with long-time allies, joined in the fight for racial justice and democracy. The inauguration on Jan. 20 cannot happen soon enough.”
