Our Union’s Political Action Committee holds Endorsement Meetings periodically to meet with candidates for elected office to ask them of their stances on issues that matter to working people and our Union — policy and attitude toward public employees come first, not party affiliation. Our Political Action Committee then votes to endorse candidates that we feel can best use their elected positions help our members, our communities, and the labor movement moving forward.
