Dear President Grogan,

Thank you for the endorsement of the International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers. It is an honor to have your support in this presidential campaign, and I am grateful to the brothers and sisters of the Insulators Union for devoting time, effort and hard work to our movement for change.

I am proud to stand with the Insulators Union in our joint effort to build an America that values the labor of every American and rewards it with a few basic guarantees – wages that can raise a family, health care if we get sick, a retirement that's dignified, working conditions that are safe. On behalf of your members and their families, I am fighting to make sure that all Americans have access to quality healthcare, enjoy fair treatment at work, receive a fair share of the wealth they create, and that all children benefit from excellent educational opportunities.

The men and women of the Insulators Union, and all working families, deserve a President who is committed to improving the lives of working families. I will honor that commitment, as I have for over two decades in public life. Your efforts are a part of this movement, and I look forward to working with you, not just to win in November, but to deliver on the change working Americans deserve.

We're in this together, and I appreciate all you're doing. I cannot do this without you, so please stay involved. Together, we will create the changes we seek.

Sincerely,

[signature]

Barack Obama
