I’m chairman of BMWED (Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees Division) Lodge 2401. I along with our lodge President Dan Schroeder had a meeting in Kankakee with U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly and her adviser Rick Bryant to discuss Medicare for All, resisting Right to Work legislation and I urged her to introduce a bill to repeal the union crushing Taft-Hartley Act.
The congresswoman made the drive to Kankakee just to meet with us and reiterate her support for labor unions and the middle class. I think this is news and the community would benefit from knowing. Thank you.
