Political Action

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.

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! Send your completed form, along with a check for your contribution payable to “DIME PAC,” to the Washington State Labor Council, 321 16th Ave. South, Seattle, WA, 98144.
