Active Ballot Club
The Active Ballot Club (ABC) is the political division of UFCW Local 1994. ABC gives you a voice on issues that directly affect you, your family, workplace, safety, affordable health care, fair taxes, and your rights on the job.
Your ABC contribution is an investment in good government Collective bargaining and political action: two sides of the same coin.
Your union dues fuel our collective bargaining function, but we choose to use voluntary contributions from members like you to contribute to candidates who support working families.
That’s why we come to you for contributions to our Active Ballot Club (ABC). Your contributions of from $1 to $10 a pay period (or more) help candidates who care about you, your job, your benefits and working conditions.
How do we decide who deserves our support? Our Executive Board reviews all requests before we make contributions—
checking a candidate’s record, performance and platform, and soliciting feedback from members like you.
Big Business outspends unions by 15 to 1 Business interests—like Wal-Mart, the Chamber of Commerce and the Business Roundtable—spend $15 in politics for every $1 spent by unions.
We can’t hope to match them dollar for dollar. So, we’ve got to work smarter and harder in politics.
People over profits
We’ve got another advantage over big money and big business in politics. The other side is all about profits
while we’ve got an agenda we can be proud of: education, public safety, transportation and quality of life issues.
