The election for U.S. President will happen this November, and the Republican and Democratic parties start voting on nominees this month.
But before TWU endorses a presidential candidate, your union wants to hear from you about the issues that are most important and which candidate you support. At the direction of President Lombardo and the IAC, the Government Affairs Department developed an online survey to accomplish this.
The survey is anonymous, but it does ask for some basic information (gender, age range, race, employer, state) to better understand how the issues and candidates break down by each of these categories.
The candidates who you elect this year will shape the nation’s future. They will decide whether our laws support workers or attack labor unions, whether our nation builds an economy that works for everyone or just for the wealthy one percent, and whether the Supreme Court will mold the U.S. Constitution to uphold the rights of all, or just the few. We can elect a president who fights for workers, but only if we stand together.
