Sherrod Brown, Ohio Labor Leaders Preview “Workers for Sherrod” Statewide Tour

COLUMBUS, OH – Today, Sherrod joined “Workers for Sherrod” co-chairs Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga and Ohio State Building and Construction Trades Council Executive Secretary-Treasurer Mike Knisley to preview the “Workers for Sherrod” statewide press tour, which will highlight Sherrod’s record of fighting and delivering for Ohio workers.

“I’m grateful for the support of Ohio workers and to Tim and Mike for their leadership and advocacy. I’ve always believed that when you love this country, you fight for the people who make it work, which is why I’m running for reelection,” said Senator Sherrod Brown. 

“I can confidently say the choice for Senate in Ohio is crystal clear. Sherrod has consistently stood by Ohio workers, and I’ve had the privilege of witnessing his steadfast dedication to Ohio workers firsthand,” said Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga. “The Dignity of Work is more than just a slogan for Sherrod, it’s how he wakes up and does his job every day. Sherrod is one of the few elected officials who not only talks, but also listens and then acts. We never have to wonder about where Sherrod stands: he always stands with Ohio workers.”  

“Sherrod’s record of delivering for Ohio workers cannot be overstated. From passing the CHIPS Act to his work to ensure the bipartisan infrastructure package included Buy America provisions, his leadership will benefit thousands and thousands of workers across our state,” said Ohio State Building and Construction Trades Council Executive Secretary-Treasurer Mike Knisley. “Under Sherrod’s leadership, the lives of working families are undeniably better. We need working families across Ohio to understand the stakes of this election and why we need so badly to keep Ohio’s best advocate for working families in the Senate.” 

Sherrod has always fought for workers and the Dignity of Work to make sure hard work pays off for everyone:

  • Sherrod led the fight to save the pensions of over 100,000 Ohioans through the Butch Lewis Act, and named the bill after an Ohio Teamster.
  • Sherrod has always stood up against bad trade deals like NAFTA that shipped Ohio jobs overseas and is fighting to make sure workers have a seat at the table for all trade agreements.
  • Sherrod worked to pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law with prevailing wage requirements, creating good-paying jobs for workers in the trades across Ohio rebuilding our infrastructure.
  • Sherrod led the CHIPS and Science Act to ensure the future of technology is built in Ohio, by Ohio workers. 
  • Sherrod introduced the Restoring Overtime Pay Act to enshrine overtime pay protections into law and expand who qualifies for overtime pay so millions more Americans are paid for the hours they work. 
  • Sherrod has always stood up to Wall Street, special interests, powerful corporations, and members of both parties when it’s right for Ohio workers. 
  • Sherrod championed the Child Tax Credit expansion to provide working families with financial relief to accommodate the rising prices of healthcare, childcare, and housing. 
  • Sherrod is also working to grow the next generation of Ohio workers by organizing summer manufacturing camps across Ohio that give young people an opportunity to learn about a future in the industry. 
  • Sherrod introduced the Part-Time Worker Bill of Rights Act to expand pension and family leave benefits and give part-time workers more control over their schedule.
