Now more than ever, the candidates that we elect to office matter. There is an organized attack that is happening against working people called “The Right to Work” that is driving down wages and benefits for union and non-union workers. However, we have done a good job of electing champions that have helped our members improve their lives. Just this year, our elected champions have helped settle contracts for Silicon Valley security and at Disney Land, and have helped raise wages for airport workers in LA and San Francisco. In addition, our elected champions in Sacramento continue to help us push our legislative goals of ending rape on the night shift in all industries.
None of these victories would be possible without USWW members engaging in political action. This means talking to voters on the phone and at their homes to make sure they understand who is really fighting for work- ing people. Make sure you volunteer to help keep our union strong. When We Fight, We Win!
