Local 959 was the first labor organization to endorse a congressional candidate when we endorsed Tara Sweeney for congress this past June. Tara ran a strong campaign but ultimately decided to withdraw and will not be featured on the ballot this November 8th.

Mary Peltola won the special election to finish the late Congressman Don Young’s seat. Mary has a solid standpoint on labor and continuing to build a strong, trained workforce for Alaska. Her stance on safe and responsible resource development and funding of projects to continue rebuilding Alaska makes her the strongest labor candidate in the race. Please join us in supporting Mary Peltola for Congress!
