Union Local That Endorsed Monroe Mayor Mayo From Baton Rouge

The union local that last week endorsed Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo for re-election is not based in Monroe, contrary to reports in the local daily newspaper.

Mayo gets city union backing

A local union on Thursday endorsed Mayor Jamie Mayo to show its confidence, as city employees, in the existing leadership at Monroe City Hall. The International Union of Operating Engineers (Local 216), along with Sanitation Superintendent Don Hopkins, Purchasing Manager Greg Yoes, and a roomful of city employees and supervisors from various departments gave Mayo their endorsement Thursday at his headquarters on Stubbs Avenue.

The International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) Local 216 is headquartered in Baton Rouge, according to the union’s website.

The Monroe Free Press on Saturday reported the story.
