Ballot Measures:

Constitutional Amendment 102 – Support

This constitutional amendment would make affordable housing bond dollars go farther by allowing Local governments to partner with non-profit and private housing providers.

Constitutional Amendment 103 – Oppose

This is a tax carve-out for corporations like Walmart who want to avoid paying their fair share. Blocks the ability of voters and local governments to make their own decisions about local issues and address public health crises.

Constitutional Amendment 104 – Oppose

Would make it harder to eliminate tax loopholes or hold corporations and the wealthy accountable for paying their fair share.

Ballot Measure 105 – Oppose

Repeals 30-year-old sanctuary state law. Backed by a known hate group, it would increase racial profiling, harm immigrant communities, and jeopardize public safety.

Ballot Measure 106 – Oppose

Backed by anti-choice extremists, it would reduce access to abortion by eliminating funding for abortion and women’s healthcare for people on Medicaid and for public employees.

coming in late summer/early fall: November midterm election endorsements

This year’s midterm elections are shaping up to be particularly pivotal. Remain informed, make sure you are registered to vote, and watch here for your union’s endorsements.

WA State Primaries (August, 2018)

Our ABC (Active Ballot Club) has endorsed these candidates for the WA State Primary this summer. Remember that the ABC endorses candidates not based on their political party, but on their platform and their emphasis on workers’ rights.

There are noticeably fewer candidates endorsed in Washington than in Oregon; this is because Local 555 only endorses for areas where our member work, which is just SW Washington. For UFCW endorsements for the rest of the state, please visit Local 21.

Oregon Primaries (May, 2018)

The Oregon May primaries have passed. Here’s the list of who we endorsed (PDF).

75% of our endorsed candidates won their races and another 12% advanced to run-offs. Congratulations to all on a well-fought race!
