Welcome

We created this page to enable our members to GET INVOLVED in the political and legislative process. You will find this easy to navigate so you can access effective grass-roots tools that will allow you to GET INVOLVED at both the national and local level. Up-to-date information on recent events is also made available here on key legislative and political issues relevant to workers and the labor movement.

The United Association views legislative and political affairs among our top goals and priorities, primarily because of the impact on jobs and on our future. And, today, the need for every UA member to be politically and legislatively active is greater than ever before. Our efforts are focused on protecting rights of workers and unions and creating good

jobs for working families. Our strength, as always, lies in our solidarity – when our voices united as one, we cannot be ignored.

I urge you to utilize this website, as well as our new text-alert program to GET INVOLVED.

Now is the time to GET INVOLVED! Whether you are veteran UA member or a first-year apprentice - your involvement is essential to our future.

Mark McManus
General President
