The Active Ballot Club (ABC), the UFCW’s political action committee, leads the charge to elect pro-worker candidates--so we don’t end up with anti-worker politicians making decisions that affect our future. PACs work by raising voluntary money from people who are either members of, employed by, or working for a particular organization--like the UFCW. ABC supports pro-worker candidates and incumbents--Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. It is the only political action committee that is dedicated to advocating for and protecting the interests of UFCW members.
