"As a local elected official, I am proud to endorse Bhavini Patel for PA-12.

"For 110 years we have fought for workers in the HVAC-R and pipefitting industry and know that we need someone in Congress who will fight for us. Our 1,500 members work in a wide range of industries from piping and boiling to refrigeration and air conditioning and Bhavini will prioritize the needs of the District and will secure the rights we need so we can continue to serve Western Pennsylvania steamfitters. She will work with the Biden administration to bring back dollars to the region to invest in creating good-paying union jobs. 

We proudly endorse Bhavini Patel for Congress in Pennsylvania's 12th District."
