The San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council’s Political Department works to increase legislative and political support for issues affecting working families.


The Labor Council reviews and recommends positions on propositions, and candidates running for elected office, advocating for worker’s legislative interests. At a time when workers are anxious about their economic security and corporations are making record profits, we encourage grassroots activism to provide information to working families and to ask them to act on that information by engaging their elected representatives as well as by informing other working families in their communities.

We are moving onto the General Cope Endorsement process beginning in March. Please see the steps below on how we will be proceeding.
