UFCW launches new legislative and political site: voteufcw.org

Excitement is in the air at here UFCW - today we launched our new legislative and political website, voteufcw.org.

We wanted to create a new tool workers can use to make sure our elected officials and laws focus on the needs of working families. And thus, voteufcw.org was born.

The site was designed with UFCW members and working families in mind – we’ve stocked it with crucial information and helpful tools to make it easier to stay engaged in the legislative and political processes that affect your life.

Here are some of the things you can do on voteufcw.org:

  • Get information on the legislative issues that matter to you—immigration, jobs, food safety, and more.
  • Find the latest news and information on UFCW political issues and actions, including information on candidates local unions have endorsed.
  • Directly contact your member of Congress to let them know what you think--we even provide a script!
  • Watch videos, download flyers, see photos on Flickr, and post your own photos of workers in action.
  • Connect and share with other workers, and see how folks like you around the country are taking action every day for good jobs.
  • Contribute online to the UFCW’s Political Action Committee (PAC), the Action Ballot Club, and support candidates, organizations, and ballot initiatives that will improve the lives of working families.
Voteufcw.org is one more way to show how strong we are together. So let’s put government to work for working Americans! Check out the new site today, at http://www.voteufcw.org/.
