Everything—from members’ wages to benefits and working conditions—is affected by policies set by elected leaders. Whether we like it or not, politicians make decisions that affect our daily lives and it’s up to us to vote for leaders that will champion our issues.

From prevailing wage laws and workers’ compensation rules to enforcement of OSHA and infrastructure spending, elected officials can help create good jobs and improve conditions for LIUNA members or make things worse.

LIUNA members come from all different backgrounds and political persuasions. Not every member will agree with every union-endorsed candidate but we can all agree on economic issues that directly affect our jobs and paychecks.

LIUNA members build America from our roads and bridges to our transit systems. However, the transportation system that was once the envy of the world has now fallen into disrepair – putting lives at risk and jeopardizing our economic competitiveness.  Our needs are great and are far outpacing investment.  Roads and bridges are also chronically under-invested in – each year falling billions short of what’s needed. It’s time to stop sugar-coating the issue of America’s crumbling roads and bridges. The deteriorating condition of our transportation infrastructure, with one in four bridges deficient or obsolete and potholes and other poor road conditions contributing to approximately 10,000 traffic deaths a year – coupled with hundreds of thousands of jobs at risk.

Pensions and retirement security after a life of hard work is under attack. Two-thirds of Americans no longer have a secure, adequate, and predictable retirement check. Social security and a defined-benefit pension plan have long been the foundation of a secure retirement, however, use of employer-paid defined pension plans has declined dramatically for non-union workers, in favor of 401(k)s and other investment funds that depend mostly on what employees can save. Union workers are also struggling to retain defined-benefit plans.

LIUNA believes in access to affordable healthcare benefits for all working people. LIUNA members, retirees, and their families have the advantage of health benefits because our brothers and sisters stood up generations ago and fought for quality health care benefits, forming non-profit, labor-management healthcare plans to administer benefits. However, harmful and unfair provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are putting these hard-earned benefits at risk. According to the Census Bureau, 82 percent of union construction workers have health insurance, compared with only 46 percent of non-union construction workers. While bargaining for health care grows more expensive, LIUNA is exploring innovative ways to reduce costs, such as pooling more members to increase purchasing power.
