See Local 117 Political Endorsements here.

Working families and middle class jobs are under attack all across the country.  From the attack on collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin to the squeeze on correctional employees, recycle drivers, and workers at Davis Wire right here in Washington State.

One of the most important ways to stand up and confront these attacks is through the ballot box

"If we let Wall Street banks and private insurance companies rig the system, how will the next generation of Americans pay their mortgages and take care of their familes?" asks former Army Sergeant Robert Bruner.

For 15 years Sgt. Bruner put up with dangerous working conditions at his job at Davis Wire in Kent.

"No lunch breaks, 10-12 hour shifts without stopping for weeks in a row, fingers cut off, arms twisted like twizzle sticks."

So Sgt Bruner and 85 of his coworkers went on strike, taking on Davis Wire's owner, billionaire Michael Heisley.

"My future, the future of America's middle class, is on the line. That's why I'm voting for candidates who stand up for hard working middle class folks like us."

Stand with Robert Bruner and cast your vote for candidates who have pledged to defend the middle class and make the wealthiest 1% pay their fair change. 

Learn about who your Local Union is endorsing to stand with Sgt Bruner and defend the middle class.

AUGUST 7 PRIMARY: Return your ballot through the mail. Mailed ballots require first class postage and must be postmarked by Aug. 7.  For more information:
