A mailer from a coalition of pharmaceutical companies and unionized construction workers attacked Democrats’ legislative effort to lower prescription drug prices, The Intercept reported.

The mailer, from the Pharmaceutical Industry Labor-Management Association and  distributed in a New York Congressman’s district, says the Lower Drug Costs Act would eliminate as many as 41,000 good jobs, including within 76 plants in New York State.

Several the unions listed as PILMA trustees on the association’s website are affiliated with the AFL-CIO, which issued a statement last month supporting the legislation, the publication reported.
