2020 Oregon Primary Election Endorsements

Raise Your Voice for Labor Rights

When we vote, we ensure that union voices are heard by officials who influence the future of our industry.

On the back of this card are candidates who have shown support for carpenter issues. This includes topics such as prevailing wage, worksite safety, apprenticeship growth, and protecting us from union-busting “right-to-work” laws. These recommendations come from your local and regional union leadership. How you vote is up to you, and we hope that you will consider these endorsements when filling out your ballot.

Your vote is your voice–make it heard! #GOTV
