I.C. Federation of Labor endorses Rettig

Federation delegates, representing more than a dozen different unions and, in turn, thousands of workers in our community, voted unanimously to endorse Janelle Rettig for supervisor based on her track record of real success in making Johnson County a better place for all working people.

Rettig has been a true champion for worker-led initiatives to raise the minimum wage, ensure worker safety and fair standards on county-funded construction projects, and establish the groundbreaking Johnson County Community ID program. Moreover, Rettig consistently seeks input from residents across the socio-economic spectrum, ensuring that highly paid professionals, low-wage workers, students, the unemployed, and everyone in between has a voice and a seat at the table in local government decisions that affect all members of our diverse community.

A vote for Rettig in the June 5 primary is a vote for a strong local economy that works for all.

Greg Hearns, President

Iowa City Federation of Labor
