The United Farm Workers announced it is endorsing President Joe Biden for reelection on Tuesday, the latest union to line up behind him while the United Auto Workers dents Biden’s image as the “most pro-union president in history.”
UFW President Teresa Romero called Biden an “authentic champion” for workers and their families.

“The United Farm Workers has seen firsthand the positive impact that President Biden has made in the economic standing, labor rights, and daily lives of farm workers across America,” Romero said in a statement. “That is why we are proud to again endorse Joe Biden for President and Kamala Harris as Vice President of the United States.”
The endorsement from the UFW comes as UAW enters the 12th day of its strike against the “Big Three” automakers in Detroit — General Motors, Ford, and Stellantis.

Jeff Zients, White House chief of staff, called Biden the “most pro-union president in history.”
