On May 24th, 2018, USW Local 2251 voted to support Ross Romano, Progressive Conservative, as your candidate to support in the upcoming Provincial Election on June 7th.
Mike Da Prat, President of United Steel Workers 2251, said this decision was made via secret ballot voting. The members made their decision after each candidate was brought in to present their platforms.
Da Prat said the USW don’t want to be stereotyped for always supporting the NDP. He explained how they want each party to work for the USW’s support and become important enough that they can maintain it.
“We want all parties to work for our vote,” he said. “Why would anyone care what we thought if we were fixated on one party? We wish Ross Romano the best of luck in the upcoming election.”
