Union Member Candidate School

Support for union members running for elected office is a top priority for the Massachusetts AFL-CIO and our affiliates. We know that when our members run on a platform of working people’s values and receive unified support from the labor movement, we will win. The Massachusetts AFL-CIO and its Executive Board are establishing a union candidate school to train our members to run for elected office from the local/municipal level all the way up to statewide/federal office.

The Massachusetts AFL-CIO and its Executive Board are proud to announce the first session of our MA AFL-CIO Union Candidate School to train our members to run for elected office from the local/municipal level all the way up to statewide/federal office. Our first session will be held on Saturday December 7th, 9am-2pm. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. The training will be free of charge and participants will be given materials to use as a reference for campaign purposes.
In order to be eligible, members must contact their union leadership for sponsorship and register with the MA AFL-CIO. The training will be helpful for those considering a run for office, those who have made the decision to run, and union political and legislative staff looking for an opportunity to learn more about the campaign process.
