Election 2016: Members Speak Out

Ronnie Green
Local 1535

Ronnie Green, 49, of Florence, Ala., has been a union man for 25 years, 12 with the IUPAT, two with PACE, and 11 with the USW since the merger. He has been president of USW Local 1535 at SCA Tissue for the past 5 years. He also serves as treasurer of the Shoals Democratic Club and is a member of the Lauderdale County Democratic Executive Board.

“I believe that Hillary Clinton is the right person to rebuild the middle class because we have been in steady decline since Ronald Reagan was elected. She recognizes that wages have not kept up with inflation and she will help get an increase in the minimum wage.

“Also, it is really important that she will appoint judges to the Supreme Court who will be labor friendly, and she will appoint people to the National Labor Relations Board who are on the side of working people, not big corporations.”
