Wabtec provided some $60 million in payments to the company's 20 top executives as a result of its merger with GE but is now trying to force workers into 12 hour shifts without overtime pay. That is outrageous. I stand with UE Local 506 and 618. https://t.co/kvaImpi8gL

While health insurance and drug companies make billions in profits, thousands of Americans die each year because they lack access to health care. We must make health care a right, not a privilege. Thank you @RepJayapal for helping to lead the effort to pass Medicare for All. https://t.co/dQpvFIJ3R7

Americans are sick and tired of corporate America and their wealthy CEOs ripping off working families. I'm proud to stand with the locomotive manufacturing workers of @ueunion Local 506 and 618 in their fight against GE/Wabtec to maintain decent wages and working conditions. https://t.co/q20Iafo8XN

No surprise. Insurance and drug companies oppose Medicare for All. They make billions in profits from our dysfunctional system and pay their CEOs outrageous amounts. But we have the people on our side. They understand we must guarantee health care as a right, not a privilege. https://t.co/rHwZejMUNG

The people of Venezuela are enduring a serious humanitarian crisis. The Maduro government must put the needs of its people first, allow humanitarian aid into the country, and refrain from violence against protesters.

.@UEUnion workers from #UE506 line up to vote to authorize a strike if necessary as negotiations with Wabtec breakdown. At stake: weekends, family sustaining wages, job security and 80 years of workers’ rights.  I stand with #UE506 and working Americans everywhere. https://t.co/Eo2meQT2Wi
