District Council 6 – NABTU Legislative Conference

From March 14 – 16, 2018, the officers of District Council 6 attended the North America Building Trades Union Legislative Conference. During the conference, the officers had the opportunity to have a discussion with Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (D-OH). Throughout her political career, Kaptur has made history for the state of Ohio. She served as U.S. Representative of Ohio’s 9th District, became the longest-serving woman ever in the House of Representatives, the fourth longest-serving member of Congress from Ohio, and the sixth longest-serving member of the House overall. Most importantly, Kaptur is a big supporter of organized labor and labor unions. District Council 6 will continue to support Marcy Kaptur as she is a labor-friendly politician.
