I think every shop steward should be training someone else and that person can be training someone else too.

Our Voices, Our Choices: The American Dream Fund


Our union’s political power is key to improving the lives of 32BJ members and their families.

No matter how much strength we build in the workplace, we cannot stop when the workday ends. That’s why 32BJ members work hard to elect public officials who have the best interests of working families at the top of their agenda. Our political power has meant:

  • Winning strong contracts with wage increases and good benefits.
  • Electing public officials who stand up for us, not for the wealthy and corporations.
  • Passing public policies that protect our jobs and strengthen our communities.

We must continue to build our political strength so that we can take on the tough battles – and win!
