UFCW Local 700 Endorses Christina Hale for Congress

United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) Local 700 announced their endorsement for Christina Hale in her race for United States Congress in Indiana’s 5th District.

UFCW Local 700 represents nearly 14,000 workers in supermarkets and food packing, processing, and manufacturing plants and is part of the 1.3 million-member United Food and Commercial Workers International Union.

“UFCW Local 700 is proud to endorse Christina Hale,” said UFCW Local 700 President Chorpenning. “Christina Hale will stand up for our members in Congress just like she did in the Statehouse – for good jobs, affordable health care, and stronger communities. She has a long record of fighting for working men and women in Indiana. In the Statehouse she was able to bridge political divides to pass important legislation supporting working families – that’s why we’re standing with her.”
