Congressman Ben Ray Lujan of New Mexico’s 3rd District was the guest speaker at Local 1319’s October meeting.
Congressman Lujan’s grandfather was a Union Carpenter, and his father was an iron worker, and he knows first-hand the importance of Unions and Union families.
“If you want the job done right the first time, do it Union,” says Congressman Lujan.
The Southwest Carpenters have a friend in the Congressman who believes in the strength of Davis-Bacon, the positive effects that prevailing wages has on our families and communities, and the dignity of a Union paycheck.
He fights for a Union way of life and understands the importance of Carpenter Economics. Moreover, he knows that when you build Union you get quality that will last – as represented by the home he lives in which was built by his grandfather.
