SUPPORT


When times are tough.

Bad times can happen for all of us at one time or another, and the Food Bank is there for our members. Along with Local members and our signatory contractors donations, local sources such as Northwest Harvest and Food Lifeline, provide assistance during hard times. We thank all for their donations!

FAMILY


Here at Local 46, family is very important to us. Several times throughout the year we sponsor picnics, golf tournaments, Potlucks, game nights, Barbeques and many more family oriented functions.

We realize that our members spend many hours away from home, so it is important to celebrate togetherness whenever possible.

PEOPLE POWER


Through political action, unions seek to enhance their political power.
Why is political power so important?
In a democratic society, the extent or magnitude of political power gives unions their voice and their seat at the great social negotiating table provided by democracy.
The work of a democratic society is accomplished through a system of bargaining by those who possess political power.
The greater the political power, the greater the bargaining power.
Political action is part and parcel of a free democratic society, and unions, as part of the democratic community, not only engage in political action, but are obligated to do so on behalf of their members and their interests.
