Working men and women have strength in numbers and the goal of the Boilermakers’ legislative and political efforts is organizing that strength to win the good pay, retirement security, safe work environments, and much more. The union pursues political action through the Legislative Education Action Program (LEAP), an inclusive and bipartisan effort to support candidates who champion the goals of working families, promote needed energy investments, promote the shipbuilding and industrial manufacturing base, and support fair trade. The union encourages members to be active participants in the political process through voting and volunteering.
