Now is the time to fight for America's future.

Here are some of the issues affecting our members, endorsed candidates and an easy guide to register to vote!  

KEY ISSUES

Steadfast support for all working families

We are seeing union-busting and corporate greed like never before. Our elected leaders should amplify the voices of working people. Many politicians and interest groups are mobilizing against us to cut our power and make themselves richer instead. They work for us and It’s time to vote them out. 

Health care access and retirement security 

Our health care and our retirement funds are under attack by politicians at every level trying to stamp out unions and increase corporate profit. Politicians are hoping you don’t notice as they undercut our pension and health care. We can hold them accountable by making our voices heard at the voting booth.

Job creation and infrastructure investment 

Our economy was decimated because of the White House’s inaction in the face of a global pandemic. Workers are now responsible for rebuilding our economy. Our leaders must support us in this fight.

Your next paycheck, health insurance, our next contract, and your retirement security depends on us showing up. 
This election cycle, let us stand together to vote for candidates who fight for ALL American people. Not just those in power.
