Endorsements

The endorsed candidates or referendums listed below are local endorsements made by local union members at their Area Labor Federations. Local labor federations strive for only the best leaders in their communities. Civic engagement and public education create opportunities for people to be their very best and only those who support Labor and their priorities are chosen to be endorsed. Voting is the key function of a democratic society and we encourage all people to vote on Tuesday, November 5th or earlier at the polls or by absentee ballot.
