Be concerned about your brother. You may not be on strike, but either we go up together or we go down together. Let us develop a kind of dangerous unselfishness.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Legislative & Political Action

Legislative and political action is critical to building and maintaining a strong and viable union -- especially in the construction industry.

 

Prevailing wage laws, the right to collectively bargain, worker's compensation, unemployment benefits, occupational safety and health laws, are just a few of the many laws designed to protect the standard of living and quality of life for all working families.

 

For that reason, the Wisconsin Laborers' District Council monitors legislation, participates in campaigns and elections, and communicates with government officials and staff to make sure that the voices of construction craft laborers and our families are heard at all levels of government.
