Biden is scheduled to meet with the union at 3 p.m., and then greet workers at the 46 Street gate during shift change, according to the union’s news release.
“He has always been a friend of the labor union,” said Charles Spivey, president of USW Local 8888.
Spivey said before Biden arrives, there will be a luncheon with a couple location politicians endorsed by the union, including Rep. Bobby Scott, (D-3rd district) and Elaine Eluria.
Biden’s wife, Jill, is scheduled to christen the Virginia-Class Submarine Delaware (SSN 791) Saturday morning. It is unclear if the former vice president will attend the christening.
