Political Action: USWW Stands for Dignity
Political action makes a difference. Whether it’s the right to organize, immigration, healthcare or education, the decisions politicians make affect every aspect of our lives. We work to elect leaders that value working people and families over corporations and the very wealthy. We then work with those leaders to make sure that the system is working for families and not against them.
Thanks to the members of USWW, we have been able to win big for workers in California. From passing legislation to help prevent wage theft and rape on the night shift and passing a sanctuary workplace bill that will allow people to work without fear of deportation, to electing champions to local, state and national offices, USWW members are pushing forward a critical agenda.
Committee on Political Action
At a time when the billionaire class is looking to exploit us and remove the protections we have fought so hard for, USWW is fighting back, and winning. The only way this is possible is for all of our members to contribute to SEIU’s Committee on Political Education (COPE). COPE helps move forward our larger work that is designed to improve the lives of all working people, beyond the improvements that we win at the bargaining table.
