IBEW Says Sen. Peters is Right Choice to Head DSCC

IBEW International President Lonnie Stephenson issued the following statement on the announcement of Sen. Gary Peters as the new chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

“Sen. Peters is a longtime champion of working families. Growing up in a union household, he’s never forgotten the hard-working men and women who make America what it is. He’s a strong supporter of President Biden’s build back better agenda, with its focus on rebuilding an economy that rewards work not wealth and creating good union jobs. The IBEW is excited to support him as the new chair of the DSCC.”


The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) represents approximately 775,000 members and retirees who work in a wide variety of fields, including construction, utilities, manufacturing, telecommunications, broadcasting, railroads and government.
