The RVF understands the importance of being politically active. Our Union’s involvement in Legislative Issues and Political Action Committees is vital if we intend to succeed in our constant battle for the good-paying jobs that our members deserve. When our members participate in Labor Walks, lobby days or simply gather together at town hall meetings, we create the foundation along with strong relationships that are essential in lobbying for important legislation.
This type of involvement not only helps the RVF’s membership, but all other unions and working people alike. Elected officials often witness RVF’s members mobilizing in great numbers in support of new legislation or candidate support. The RVF instantly recognizes how valuable we are in the political process. When we lobby for laws to protect working people, elected officials are often reminded by their staff of the impact that was demonstrated through our actions. They know that when we care about an issue or a cause, we commit our full support wherever and whenever necessary.
