Local Political Action
The Cornerstone to any strong Local is its ability to influence politics!
A strong political platform can enable your Local to obtain better health and safety laws, negotiate stronger contracts and help shape the way in which your City Council or elected body treats your members in the future.
HOW CAN THE CPF POLITICAL DEPARTMENT HELP MY LOCAL?
Effective political action can help keep your Local out of the courtroom, and instead, in front of your elected officials, getting what you need for your members.
The Political Action Committee was created to develop our members' understanding of government and policy enforcement. This kind of influence goes beyond the realm of their own community. The goals of our political action plan include:
- Establishing and maintaining positive relationships with legislators and their staff
- Assisting locals in developing relationships with their legislative representatives which, in turn, makes us more effective in Sacramento
- Coordinating political activities among Locals with regard to state offices or initiatives
- Working with Locals to design, develop, and implement campaign strategies and political programs
