The strength of Union Carpenters at the polls is defined by our ability to affect the outcome of elections. Here at the NRCC we realize that supporting candidates that support our values is vital part of our future success, therefore we take elections very seriously. This year and every year our focus at the NRCC is to expand work opportunities for our members. We will accomplish our goals by supporting and electing candidates who develop intelligent labor laws that raise construction industry standards and expand labor opportunities for our workers. We are dedicated to growing our political capital and building our strength by ensuring that are members are civically educated and registered to vote. Every election is an opportunity for us to promote our Carpenter Values. As trade unionists and citizens, if we want our values represented in government, it is necessary that we register to vote. As a member of the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters, you serve as the most vital part of our political team. We ask that you perform your duty and vote on Election Day. Affecting change and being part of policymaking is often hard work, but the rewards are great. We must continue to be involved in the election process so that non-union interests will not dictate conditions for our members.
