Government Affairs

U.S. Capitol Building  

We all know that what is won at the bargaining table can be taken away with the stroke of a pen. Legislation can either add to or take away from our collective bargaining agreements. TWU represents its members’ interests with legislators including the president, Congress, federal agencies, and other groups on legislative issues that affect you. As your advocate, TWU evaluates changes in state and local governments that may affect federal law and vice versa. We strive to uphold the TWU Constitution “to promote legislation advancing the interests of the Union and its members at the local, state and national levels, to engage in political education of the membership, and to engage in such other activity as may be necessary…”

As your representative in Washington, TWU works to ensure that our members have their voices heard in the halls of Congress and the White House on all of these critical issues.
