Political Action

What is our mandate?

  • Encourages HEU members to become politically active.
  • Helps to implement HEU’s action plan to protect and strengthen public health care.
  • Assists in expanding the network of members who are prepared to engage in political action, organizing lobbying, and other political action activities.
  • Builds support for candidates who support the policies and objectives of the union.

Since 1944 HEU members have engaged in political action to protect and defend our public health care system and to take on some of the biggest issues facing our union. To continue this tradition, HEU’s Political Action subcommittee put together a toolkit for locals. Check out the toolkit and comic below.
