Location: Staten Island, NY

Today, Congressman Michael Grimm (R,C-NY) announced the endorsement for re-election in New York's Eleventh Congressional District by the International Organization of Masters, Mates & Pilots Union which is the marine affiliate of the International Longshoremen's Association.

Congressman Michael Grimm said: "I am truly honored to receive the endorsement from the Masters, Mates & Pilots Union. The hard working men and woman that work on the water within our harbor keep commerce flowing into and out of the Port of New York. They are a vital part of the economy of Staten Island and Brooklyn. I have valued their friendship, advice and support and I look forward to a continued strong relationship with them in the coming months and years ahead. I will continue fighting for enactment the Short Sea Shipping Act, maintaining full funding for the Maritime Security Program, defending the Jones Act and growing our nation's merchant marine. I will also continue to fight against egregious tolls on the trucks that bring the cargo to and from the Port of New York."

The International Organization of Masters, Mates & Pilots Union (MM&P) maintains a close working relationship with other AFL-CIO seagoing and shore-side maritime unions. MM&P is a member of the AFL-CIO Transportation Trades Department (TTD) and the Maritime Trades Department (MTD).
