Political Action

Local 19’s Political Department

Local 19 understands the power of political action. We have a long history of putting boots on the ground to support candidates who support working people and see them through to victory. We advocate for family sustaining wages, having access to healthcare, the ability to retire with dignity, and a strong voice in the workplace. When we stand together and effectively make changes now, we create a better community for ourselves, our families, and future generations.
