Good Government and Accountable Corporations

We deserve a government that works for the people and demands accountability from corporations. Without a healthy democracy in which public participation is allowed and embraced, the voices of union members will be drowned out by the influence of powerful corporations. Without strong regulations and enforcement, corporations are free to put profit above health and safety of the public and the environment.

We support a government that protects public assets and aggressively regulates the private sector to protect our health, environment and well-being. We support public participation in the political process and defend the right of workers to make their voices heard. We oppose the subversion of democracy by anti-union billionaires that funnel money into state elections. We believe that corporate accountability starts in the boardroom and must continue in the community. Transparency in corporate behavior and government decision making are vital to the health of our economy and our democracy.
