Political Action

votersAll across the country, corporations and the super-rich are funneling unprecedented amounts of money into legislative attacks on workers, women, and voting rights. Their goal is to create an even more unbalanced economy where the rich get richer, the powerful stay in power, and working people have no mechanism to fight back.

Through our political action, Local 700 members work to level the playing field. By bringing together thousands of workers, our voice is amplified to a decibel that is impossible to ignore.
