It’s been proven time and again that in order to win important labor victories like stronger collective bargaining rights, living wages and affordable health care and tax fairness, we need more union members and working class allies making the decisions that affect us all. We know that union members make great candidates and will often carry labor's vision into elected office. Too often our elected officials are more concerned with passing anti-union laws or doling out massive tax breaks to the ultra wealthy than addressing the concerns of ordinary people.

At our Worker Candidate Training we'll spend two days going over everything you need to know to run a campaign for elected office. You’ll learn how to create a campaign plan, knock on doors, speak in public, qualify for Clean Elections funding, develop a message, build a team of volunteers, and other key aspects of campaigning. 

For COVID safety reasons, this event will be held on Zoom.

Who in your local would make a great candidate? Let us know!

Please take a minute now to spread the word to your local union members. We need to elect more working people at all levels of government. If you are interested or just want to learn more, please email me back at adam at maineaflcio dot org or give me a call at 207-991-7000!
