The San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council’s Political Department works to increase legislative and political support for issues affecting working families.

The Labor Council reviews and recommends positions on propositions, and candidates running for elected office, advocating for worker’s legislative interests. At a time when workers are anxious about their economic security and corporations are making record profits, we encourage grassroots activism to provide information to working families and to ask them to act on that information by engaging their elected representatives as well as by informing other working families in their communities.


Endorsements are made directly by members of the San Diego Labor Council.  Candidates who wish to be considered for an upcoming endorsement are required to complete all three steps of the endorsement process outlined.

During election season, union volunteers participate in phone banks and precinct walks to Get Out The Vote (GOTV) for candidates that share our values. Any and all volunteers are welcome to join in our GOTV efforts and meals are usually provided.
