United Steelworkers Endorse Mike Hurley for Burnaby Mayor

Burnaby, BC – The United Steelworkers is proud to announce its support for Mike Hurley and is encouraging all working people in Burnaby to support him as the next Mayor of the city in October 20th election.

 “People who get up every morning and go to work need a Mayor on their side. They need a Mayor who understands their issues and will go to bat for them. Mike Hurley will be that Mayor,” says Stephen Hunt, United Steelworkers Director. 

 “Mike is a proven community leader. He has the experience, skills and ability to get the job done as Mayor at a time when the city needs it. Working families are finding it harder and harder to make ends meet as they watch affordable housing options literally come down with a wrecking ball. It’s time for a Mayor who will put people first again,” Hunt says.

The United Steelworkers represents over 50,000 workers in western Canada and is the largest private sector union in North America. The union’s western Canada office is located in Burnaby, where hundreds of Steelworkers reside.
