The National Nurses United (NNU), the largest union of registered nurses with more than 150,000 members, endorsed Andy Levin for the 9th Congressional District, pointing to Levin’s tenacity and experience fighting for working people.
“Andy has spent years fighting for workers’ rights throughout the nation, and we trust him to represent National Nurses United in Washington,” said Ken Zinn. “NNU believes accessible, quality healthcare for all is a basic human right and so does Andy. Moreover, he has the tenacity and experience needed to get the job done in Washington, despite our country’s divisive political climate.”
Levin supports Medicare for all and when elected will strive to ensure every man, woman and child has access to quality medical care from birth to old age. After decades of winning battles for working class families, Levin will take the fight to Washington to create a new movement to restore the middle class.
“It is a great honor to have the support of National Nurses United,” Levin said. “As a two-time cancer survivor and the father of two kids with Crohn’s Disease, I know how critical it is for everyone to have access to quality healthcare. I will fight to ensure that nurses have their voices represented in Congress.”
Levin has been named a Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate and has been endorsed by eight other national and statewide unions, including the Communications Workers of America, International Association of Machinists, Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and Millwrights, National Weather Service Employees Organization, Service Employees International Union, UFCW Local 951, UNITE HERE, and Utility Workers Union of America.
