Political Action

Don’t squander the gift of Democracy

Our Democracy is a great gift that millions of men and women fought and died to defend. Let’s not squander it!

The Executive Board and Staff of IBEW Local 7 urges our members to get involved in the political process. This means not only going to vote on election day, but calling or writing your legislators, sending letters to the editor, and informing your friends and relatives about the issues important to you, your family, and your union.

We’ve provided some useful resources here that will help you to become a more involved citizen and a better union member. Be sure to check our web site regularly and stay in touch with Local 7′s leadership to keep informed about important issues. The more we pull together, the louder or voice is, and the better we can be heard by the people we’ve elected.
