Missouri AFL-CIO endorses Mark Osmack for state treasurer


St. Louis County – Two-time combat veteran and Bronze Star recipient Mark Osmack has received the endorsement of the Missouri AFL-CIO in his Democratic bid for state treasurer.

Osmack ran for U.S. Congress in 2018 and is committed to oppose so-called “right-to-work” efforts.

“Protecting the rights of all workers, especially those with collective bargaining agreements, is necessary to provide upward mobility and quality of life for everyone in Missouri,” the Missouri AFL-CIO Executive Board said in letter announcing the endorsement.” We believe you share these same values and we believe Mark will work tirelessly to protect the rights of working people and stand and fight for their best interests when the time comes.

“Whether it be standing up for public education to ensure our system produces well-educated and trained members of the future workforce, protecting the right to safe jobsites, or further strengthening the democratic process which Organized Labor is proud to hold as core values – we believe that we have a partner [in Mark] for years to come.”

Despite its resounding defeat in 2018, there is anticipated to be another attempt to enact so-called “right-to-work” legislation in Missouri. Osmack said he was proud to be one of the 310,567 signatures submitted to the Missouri Secretary of State’s to put the measure on the ballot in 2018, and personally carried the boxes into the office.

Osmack said should any attempt be made to revisit the defeated legislation, he will again champion efforts towards its defeat.
