Central New York labor leaders say a claim that 24th Congressional District Republican candidate John Katko has the endorsement of the Teamsters Union is at least misleading. 

According to Central New York Labor Federation President Anne Marie Taliericio, labor unions throughout the 24th District are all supporting Democrat Dan Maffei for re-election. Taliericio says they have requested that the New York AFL-CIO endorse Maffei, and she expects that to be formally announced at this year's convention August 18.

Taliericio says she believes the person making the Katko endorsement is from a Teamster's local union outside Maffei's district.
