Join the Active Ballot Club!
Many of our members participate in Local 1994’s ABC (Active Ballot Club) program, the Political Action Committee (PAC) for our Union. Contributions to the ABC give our union a voice and power at the ballot box and the bargaining table. As campaigning for the midterm primary elections in June 2022 gets under way, the hard work of our PAC is just beginning.
2022 will be a watershed year for our local elections. Both Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties will elect new county executives and substantially new county councils as well. Montgomery County is adding two new Council seats that could impact our collective bargaining units and our contracts. The results of this election will have a significant impact on our ability to negotiate strong contracts and enact worker friendly legislation for years to come.
UFCW Local 1994 endorses candidates in city, county and statewide races that have an impact on our members and their families. Our endorsements can include any viable candidates, no matter their party, but the main criteria are that a candidate must support policies that support working families. It’s crucial that we get this right.
