Raise The Wage

Tell lawmakers to vote "YES" on Raising the Wage, to guarantee Virginians have a livable wage. 

No one who works full time should have to live in poverty.  A consumer-based economy simply doesn’t work if people have no disposable income. Increasing the minimum wage helps workers, local economies and communities alike. 

Lights, Camera, Jobs Act

Tell lawmakers to vote "YES" on HB 771 / SB 251, to bring Virginia's film and television incentive funds to the $50M regional average. 

The Lights, Camera, Jobs Act is intended to make Virginia more economically competitive, retain our workforce, and create a long-term marketplace for success in the industry. The jobs created in the industry are largely well paying, mostly unionized, and provide these workers with health and retirement benefits and include members of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), and International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT).


Fairness for Injured Workers

Tell lawmakers to support bringing VA in line with the other 49 states on repetitive injury coverage.

Workers’ compensation provides a crucial source of health care coverage and income support for sick or injured workers. This bill would especially benefit workers employed in plants and other workplaces where repetitive activities are a normal part of the workday by ensuring their injuries are compensable under Virginia's workers' comp system

No Metro Cuts! Stand with Metro Workers

Tell lawmakers to support Metro workers by fully funding Metro.

Whether it be getting frontline and federal workers to their jobs, our young scholars to classrooms, or the millions of visitors around our region each year, Metro underpins life for each and every person in the District and its surrounding areas. ATU Local 689 members are proud to be a part of it.

It is time for us to make sure that lawm
akers fully fund Metro and finally put in place a dedicated funding stream to bring long-term stability to the system!

Tell lawmakers to vote "YES" on SJR 272, to guarantee Virginians the right to universal suffrage/the right to vote. 

Denying the right to vote based on a felony conviction is racist in its origin, intent, and execution. At the 1902 Constitutional Convention when felony disenfranchisement was adopted, lawmakers talked openly about using this law to “eliminate the ignorant and worthless negro as a factor from politics of this State without taking the right of suffrage from a single white man.” It has done its intended job of blocking generations of Black people from the vote.


SJR 272 will remove it and ensure that every Virginia citizen over the age of 18 can vote.
