IBEW Local 43 Political Endorsements -
Election Day is Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020
Brothers and Sisters: It’s that time of year again for us, as union members, to step up to the plate and exercise our
right to vote. Since the beginning of the IBEW in 1891, our most powerful tools, local unions and our voices, have been
essential to raise the standard of living for all of us. Our members have volunteered to stand up for what is right by
participating in phone banks, canvasses and rallies to support candidates that will support unions. Our local union efforts
benefit those nearest to us, but ultimately help to make a positive impact on the rights of workers everywhere. Thank you
for your participation in the IBEW's political action program. It is essential to our growth and our future. With our very
way of life under attack, we need every member's support to win the fight for the working men and women of the IBEW. “We
can make a difference!”
Your Local Union PAC Committee, Union Officers, along with the Central & Northern NY Building and Construction Trades
Council, the Mohawk Valley & Central New York AFL-CIO Labor Council, have screened and recommend to you these candidates
who are in favor of our issues
Please exercise your rights. Vote November 3rd, 2020
