Who We Are

The UAW 4121 Political Workgroup is a group of local members interested in channeling our members’ collective power in elections and other political arenas.

What We Do

We research ballot initiatives, research electoral campaigns and their finances, issue candidate questionnaires, and conduct interviews in order to determine which federal, state, and local candidates are viable and the best advocates for workers, science, and economic justice. We weigh heavily the endorsement decisions of our sibling unions, the King Co. Labor Council, and the WA State Labor Council.

We make our recommendations for endorsements to the UAW 4121 executive board and to UAW Region 5. These endorsements and brief explanations are communicated to members via e-mail around the time Washington’s mail ballots drop. Check back soon for a full list of endorsements for the upcoming November elections! 

Get Involved

We meet as needed, so check back here or the UAW 4121 calendar for updated information about upcoming meetings. If you’re interested in joining our e-mail list or in helping work to elect endorsed candidates, please e-mail politicalwguaw4121@gmail.com.
