Steelworker Leaders support Andrea Horwath for Ontario NDP Leader



    TORONTO, Feb. 23 /CNW/ - United Steelworkers International President Leo
W. Gerard and Canadian National Director Ken Neumann have both come out in
support of Andrea Horwath for the leadership of the Ontario New Democrats.
    "I know Andrea has worked hard for both our members and working families,
locally and across the province, and she is clearly ready to be the new
provincial voice for the New Democrats as leader in Ontario. We need someone
with Andrea's talent and experience to be speaking out in the face of the
economic downturn," said Leo W. Gerard, International President of the United
Steelworkers
    "Andrea has been a tremendous friend to the United Steelworkers not only
in Hamilton, but in the North and around the province. She is an experienced
local leader - in the community and in the province, and now she is ready to
lead a new generation of New Democrats in Ontario," said Ken Neumann, National
Director of the United Steelworkers in Canada. "Andrea has worked with the
labour movement for years and understands the challenges that are facing
working people all around our province - in our cities, rural areas and in our
northern communities," Neumann said.
