UA 855 P.A.C.

POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE

The P.A.C. (Political Action Committee) has been formed to position our local in a favorable stance in the political arena. Some objectives of our P.A.C. are to bring visability to our local. Support politicians who have supported us and labor organizations in general. Educate our membership as to issues which may have an impact on their jobs, health care, wages, etc....

Occasionally, there are times when the P.A.C. will rally our members to assemble in Trenton to oppose or support legislation which may have an impact on our membership. There are many times where we send delegates to certain functions in order to keep a level of visability which maintains working relationships with politicians and other labor organizations.

The P.A.C. is funded by voluntary contributions from our membership. We're asking all our members to contribute $1.00 a week. We have arranged for convenient weekly automatic payroll deduction. For those members that can afford to contribute more, it would be greatly appreciated.

Please visit our P.A.C. web page for current events, voter registration information, as well as items of interest.
