IAM President Tom Buffenbarger welcomes Lamont win and urges Sen. Lieberman to abandon independent bid.
“Ned Lamont’s win over Joe Lieberman is an overdue victory for tens of thousands of families in Connecticut who have been victimized for too long by the free trade, pro-privatization policies embraced by Sen. Lieberman,” said Tom Buffenbarger, president of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM). “We call on Sen. Lieberman to abandon his quixotic campaign as an independent candidate and to help unite the Democratic Party in Connecticut and across the country.”
The IAM represents nearly 12,000 members in Connecticut among more than 720,000 active and retired members across North America. For more information about the IAM, visit their website at http://www.goiam.org.
