Veterans and working people are facing the same issues—a lack of good jobs, access to quality health care, and the need for racial and economic justice.

Delivering for Workers

President Biden has invested in infrastructure, strengthened workers’ rights, protected our retirements, boosted Buy American rules, helped families through a pandemic, lowered prescription costs and more. 

Above all, he has championed unions. 

That’s why the labor movement is proud to endorse President Biden for re-election. 

AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler's State of the Union Response




Sisters and Brothers,

Life really is better in a union! That's not just a slogan; it's a fact.

Workers in labor unions earn 18% more in wages, have access to better health care benefits and enjoy safer workplaces. Even in times of economic uncertainty, union members have greater job security. 

Just take a look:

Sisters and Brothers, 

I am providing a brief update on the status of our contract negotiations. 

Local 194 is one of 5 NJTA Unions (IFPTE Local 196 Chapter 1, 196 Chapter 12, 200 and AFSCME Local 3914) in bargaining with the NJ Turnpike Authority. Local 194 has also been at the individual bargaining table. Negotiations have been ongoing since April. 

While we have made progress, the job is not complete. State unions, like the 70,000 member Communications Workers of America (CWA), are in the same boat. Negotiations have been fair, respectful, but time consuming. 

Don't forget to make a VOTING PLAN. Be a UNION VOTER and support the candidates that share our values. Union members can find UNION VOTER RESOURCES at

 President Biden has proven throughout his first term that he’s the right choice for working people. He has championed unions.
