Our Politics

Because we realize that the protection of workers requires involvement of our political representatives up and down the political spectrum our Council stays involved in the political activities of this State and of our Nation.  We lobby all levels of Government and support those State and Local Candidates who recognize and support our issues.  It is important to us that our elected officials are looking for the betterment and protection of workers.  We feel it is important that those elected officials see as we do the importance of assuring Nevada's construction projects are built by Nevada construction workers.  We seek candidates who like us believe workers deserve a living wage and benefits as well as access to quality apprenticeship and journeyman up grade training.

It is important that those who we elect to office listen to the concerns of the voters who have elected them, so we urge the involvement of our members in the political process and encourage them to contact their representatives concerning issues important to them. The Endorsements Page not only includes the Councils Political endorsements, but also our position on issues which are important to our Affiliates membership. We will also post contact information on who to contact concerning those issues on this page for your convenience.

The State and Local Gov't pages will provide you contact information for the elected officials within our jurisdiction.
