What is Political Action?

  • Through shop-floor political action, UNITE HERE involves and empowers workers to take action that will help to improve our lives. Issues like Social Security, trade and Overtime laws all have a dramatic effect on American workers.

  • Just as we fight as a team at the bargaining table to negotiate better contracts, we also do that in the world of politics. Workers band together when we see we can have a direct impact on political issues that effect us.

  • To help get people involved at the workplace, we find out which issues concern the majority of workers, and then we provide simple, fun and powerful ways to get involved.

  • UNITE HERE always stresses the union's role as an independent voice for working people. We support representatives who stand up for working people regardless of their political party. In election campaigns, we provide information, not voting instructions.

  • UNITE HERE's member political activists are "watch dogs" who work to hold officials accountable and make the political system more responsive to workers' needs.
