Roofers Local 149 Business Manager Brian Gregg: “Diane is a stalwart ally of Michigan workers.”
Sterling Heights, MI — Today, Democratic candidate for Michigan’s 10th Congressional District Diane Young announced that she received the endorsement of the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers Local 149. They now join the Detroit Federation of Musicians and the OPEIU Local 40 in the growing labor movement behind Diane. Young’s campaign has been the only campaign to announce dozens of key endorsements from local leaders such as State Senators Mallory McMorrow and Rosemary Bayer and has been featured in the Detroit News and Macomb Daily.
“We are endorsing Diane because of her dedication to supporting working class men and women.” said Brian Gregg, Business Manager of Local 149. “Diane comes from union roots and understands the dignity of work and what it takes to succeed in America. She understands the struggles middle-class families face on a day to day basis, and knows how to solve them. We are excited to work closely with Diane in Congress because of her commitment to fighting with workers to secure safer working conditions, fairer wages, and to grow our community.”
“I am honored and grateful to receive the endorsement from the Roofers Local 149.” said Diane Young. “I am committed to working tirelessly to make sure workers are safe, compensated fairly, and to creating an environment where they can thrive.”
The daughter of a secretary and a union carpenter, Diane Young grew up in Romeo where she was raised to work hard and always help others. Diane worked her way through school and became a financial planner. For over thirty years Diane has helped Michigan families like hers achieve their dreams. The business she started with a folding table and a phonebook has now helped hundreds of Michiganders buy homes, save for college, and plan for the future; as well as advise scores of small businesses on their growth and success. Diane now lives in Warren with her husband, in a family of proud union members. She still finds ways both big and small to help out our community.
