Your Union’s Endorsed Candidates

“Beyond a doubt, this is the most important election of your lifetime.” Giles M. Grinko, Political Director

I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to vote in the upcoming election.  If you are not registered, please visit the website – for information on registration and mail-in voting.

Please be careful and vote for only PRO-LABOR candidates.  When you vote for a non-union candidate it’s like giving them a stick to beat you with…and who wants that?
