Make Sure Your Voice is Heard!

Why is the Political Process So Important to Local 338?

In addition to providing representation for our members in their workplaces, we also act as advocates in our local, state and federal government. Many of the decisions that are made in City Hall and at our State Capitol have a direct impact on what happens in the communities and workplaces of Local 338 members. This is why it is essential that we are active participants in both the political and legislative process. Much of our success is owed to supporting candidates and elected officials who truly understand and support the issues that face working men and women.
