Operating Engineers 825 launch ads backing Gottheimer on infrastructure bill

By David Wildstein, August 24 2021 10:15 am

The Engineers Labor-Employer Cooperative (ELEC 825) today launched digital advertisements urging Members of Congress to “Just Vote” on a bi-partisan infrastructure legislation.

The statewide ads back up the position of Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-Wyckoff), who has emerged as a national leader in opposition to stalling the infrastructure bill in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The ad urges people to call House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and tell her to post the infrastructure bill already passed by the U.S. Senate for a vote.

Script: “Roads are crumbling.  Bridges in disrepair.  Lead pipes. And no new tunnel in New York.  Our infrastructure needs to be fixed.  Josh Gottheimer has a plan to fix it and it’s simple. Just vote.  Vote on the infrastructure bill the Senate passed. That’s it.  That’s the plan. Just vote Call Speaker Pelosi and tell her to just vote on the Gottheimer plan. Nothing else.  Just vote on the infrastructure bill. It’s just that simple.”

“There have been few chances in modern political history where both parties overwhelming agree on an issue. Infrastructure is that issue,” said ELEC 825 director Mark Longo. “What Congressman Gottheimer is urging, and we support is so eminently reasonable…. just vote on the legislation and let’s start rebuilding America.”

ELEC 825 is a labor-management trust under the auspices of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 825.  The politically powerful union represents more 8,200 members and over 1,000 contractors employing their members.
