Political Action

The Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters encourages our members to be active participants in their communities by educating them on political issues and candidates, registering members to vote and supporting efforts to engage in the electoral process. We encourage members to be active participants both during and after the election. Members attend government meetings and public hearings and sit on commissions and boards across our states to work with leaders on member issues.


The Council is committed to “Carpenter Politics“, an inclusive and nonpartisan effort to support candidates who champion the goals of working people, promote needed infrastructure investments and support fair trade. Within both the Regional Council and the Locals, political committees examine candidates and issues to vote on endorsements and support. A part of this process is the candidate political questionnaire. These questions show you the most important issues to Carpenters and we want to know your views. Your answers will be shared with political committees for the Regional Council and Local in your jurisdiction.

Please follow the link to our Candidate Questionnaire form:


The answers will be reviewed by the political committee and you will be contacted about endorsement and further support. Thank you.
