Every election, delegates from the WSLC's affiliated unions vote on candidate endorsements. The WSLC then informs union members about which candidates earned endorsement, and why.
The Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO is once again partnering with the national AFL-CIO to host Path to Power: A Political Candidate Training Program on March 13-15 at the Painters District Council 5 Hall in Seattle. This training provides union members and local community activists with the tools and tips to run a successful political campaign and get elected in an effort to build power that will positively influence our communities.

Don’t Invest in More Excuses!
Only lawmakers who stand up for working families deserve organized labor’s financial support. That’s why the Washington State Labor Council created the “Don’t Invest In More Excuses” Political Action Committee (DIME PAC). Its mission is to recruit and elect champions of Washington’s working families. THAT’S how we will defend against attacks on workers’ rights and it’s how we will put government’s focus on creating and maintaining good jobs. Click here for a DIME PAC contribution form so you can contribute to keep Washington a great place to live and work!
