Phil Arballo Earns Backing of Sheet Metal Workers Local Union No.104


FRESNO – Today, Democratic Candidate Phil Arballo, running against California’s most vulnerable Republican Congressman, Devin Nunes (CA-22), announced earning the backing of the Sheet Metal Workers Local Union No. 104. Local 104 represents over 12,000 Sheet Metal Workers in 49 of the 58 counties throughout Northern, Central, Southern California.  These highly skilled men and woman design, fabricate, weld, install and service specialized products and equipment for various HVAC systems, architectural metals, production, and specialized metal fabrication for residential, industrial and commercial applications.


Rob Stoker, Political Director for Local 104 stated the following in support of Arballo. 


“We are proud to endorse Phil Arballo in CA-22. More than ever, the 22nd congressional district needs the kind of leadership that Phil will bring to Washington DC. Phil will put the constituents of CA-22 above party politics. He is a strong Democrat who will take the fight to Devin Nunes – who has been no friend of labor. Phil knows the struggles working people face in the Central Valley and will be a fierce advocate for prevailing wages, project labor agreements, and collective bargaining rights.”


Quarter 3 Fundraising Update: 

Yesterday, Arballo announced raising over $250,000 in the third quarter. Since his launch in June, Arballo’s campaign has raised over $380,000.


Arballo’s campaign is powered by over 8,000 individual contributors, with an average donation of $33.
