Political Action

 

abc

Organizations such as the Active Ballot Club (ABC) protect and promote the interests of our members by supporting legislation beneficial to all American workers and by opposing legislation harmful to union members and their families.

Members can give any amount they wish.  Some members, including your Local Union staff, contribute a minimum of $300 per year.

The ABC makes recommendations based on a number of factors, including a candidate’s past voting record and interviews to see where candidates stand on important issues.  Voters make up their own minds.

The ABC is non-partisan.  Endorsements are made based on the candidate’s commitment to the programs of the working men and women of America.

Each year in December, the Local Union has a drawing for members contributing to ABC.  Ten prizes are given out ranging from $25 to $1,000.  Tell your friends and co-workers so they can become ABC members and be put in the drawing for $1,000!

Join the ABC by downloading, printing, and filling out the form below and give it to your Union Representative – or  – mail it to the Local Union office at 7924 Interstate 30, Suite A, Little Rock, Arkansas 72209.

All UFCW members who join ABC IMPACT and pay $1.00 -OR- upgrade their contribution to $1.00 per week will be eligible to win one of six $250.00 American Express gift cards in a monthly drawing. Already signed up? Encourage a coworker to join ABC. If they win the monthly drawing, you will each win $250.00!

ABC turns pocket change into big change for working families by fighting for: 

• INCREASING THE MINIMUM WAGE
• PAID SICK LEAVE
• EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK
• OVERTIME PAY
• UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE
• IMMIGRATION REFORM

ABC is nonpartisan and independent of any political party. Your contribution will directly support the important work of UFCW activists like yourself.  Federal law requires us to use our best efforts to collect and report the name, mailing address, occupation and name of employer of individuals whose contributions exceed $200 in a calendar year.  *By providing my cellphone number, I consent to receiving informational, non-commercial text messages on my cell phone from UFCW, while reserving the right to opt out in the future.  

Join the ABC by downloading, printing, and filling out the form below and give it to your Union Representative – or  – mail it to the Local Union office at 7924 Interstate 30, Suite A, Little Rock, Arkansas 72209.
