Council 4 Votes 2022

Ready to take action?

As union members, it’s critical we vote on Nov. 8 and engage politically to protect what is worth fighting for — our bargaining rights, fair pay, secure retirement, and quality health care. 

Council 4 has put together this list of resources and information so you can be informed and engaged during this election season. Please share this information with other members of your local. 

Council 4 PEOPLE Committee Political Endorsements
Your fellow Council 4 members endorsed # candidates for Nov. 8 election. Endorsement decisions are made through review of candidate questionnaires and interviews.

Labor-to-Labor Walks
Join your fellow union members for canvassing, when we knock on union-household doors to talk about issues and educate members about labor’s endorsed candidates. You will recieve training, a script and be paired with another union member.
