THE LOCAL ONE PAC HAS BACKED CANDIDATES THAT SUPPORT AND ADVOCATE OUR POSITION ON THESE ISSUES ABOUT WHICH WE ARE PASSIONATE, AMONG OTHERS:



COLLECTIVE BARGAINING

COLLECTIVE BARGAINING RIGHTS OF UNION MEMBERS HAVE BEEN THREATENED ACROSS THE COUNTRY, WITH WISCONSIN BEING THE BIGGEST EXAMPLE OF INJUSTICE. WE MUST STAND TOGETHER AND VOTE FOR THE POLITICIANS WHO HAVE THE BEST INTEREST OF LABOR IN MIND AND SUPPORT COLLECTIVE BARGAINING RIGHTS FOR ALL CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE

WE BELIEVE THAT EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD HAVE HEALTH CARE, PLAIN AND SIMPLE. SECRETARY SCORE HAS LED THE CHARGE THROUGHOUT THE IA AND HAD A RESOLUTION PASSED BY THE ENTIRE IA DELEGATION AT THE 2009 CONVENTION IN SUPPORT OF H.R. 676, THE BILL THAT REPRESENTS UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE FOR ALL.

 FRACKING

WE HAVE BEEN AN ADVOCATE FOR FRACKING TO BE STOPPED. ONE ONLY HAS TO WATCH THE DOCUMENTARY "GASLAND" TO UNDERSTAND THE DANGERS OF FRACKING. THERE ARE MANY OTHER WAYS TO EASE OUR RELIANCE ON FOREIGN OIL.



                                        ANIMAL RIGHTS

WE SUPPORT LEGISLATION THAT SEEKS TO END ABUSE OF DOMESTIC AND CAPTIVE BRED WILD ANIMALS. AN EXAMPLE IS OUR SUPPORT OF THE “PAW PROJECT” AN ORGANIZATION DEDICATED TO STOPPING CAT DECLAWING.
THE S-380 DECLAWING BILL HAS BEEN  INTRODUCED INTO THE NEW YORK STATE SENATE. DECLAWING IS NOT NAIL CLIPPING, IT IS THE EQUIVALENT OF AMPUTATING THE ENDS OF EACH OF YOUR FINGERS AT THE FIRST KNUCKLE.
