ABC Impact: Making Government Work for Working Families

All across the country, corporations and the ultra-wealthy are funneling unprecedented amounts of money into our political system. Their goal is to create an unbalanced and unfair economy where wages are as low as possible and profits replace respect for the workers that created them.

Active Ballot Club (ABC) seeks to level the playing field. By bringing together thousands of workers, our political concerns can be amplified to a decibel that is impossible to ignore.

ABC turns pocket change into big change for working families by fighting for:

  • Increasing the minimum wage.
  • Paid sick leave.
  • Equal pay for equal work.
  • Overtime pay.
  • Safe line speeds at packing houses.
  • Unemployment insurance.
  • Immigration reform

Active Ballot Club (ABC), the UFCW’s political action committee, leads the charge to elect pro-worker candidates–so we don’t end up with anti-worker politicians making decisions that affect our future. PACs work by raising voluntary money from people who are either members of, employed by, or working for a particular organization–like the UFCW. ABC supports pro-worker candidates and incumbents–Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. It is the only political action committee that is dedicated to advocating for and protecting the interests of UFCW members.
