Workers Vote is an independent expenditure PAC that’s been registered with the Federal Election Commission since 2020, when it raised over $22.3 million and played a critical role in defeating Donald Trump in the swing states of Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Arizona, supported congressional candidates in those states and Florida, and then mobilized to play a decisive role in electing Senators Ossoff and Warnock in the Georgia runoff elections. Workers Vote worked closely with UNITE HERE in Pennsylvania and other UNITE HERE local unions elsewhere to amass the political strategists, organizers, canvassers, phone bankers, and text bankers who carried out these campaigns. In 2022, Workers Vote is running a canvassing operation in the battleground states of Nevada and Pennsylvania called Workers to the Front.
UNITE HERE sponsors the UNITE HERE TIP Campaign Committee, a federal political action committee that makes contributions and expenditures to elect federal and other candidates who support the rights and interests of working people and their families. Under federal law, participation in the PAC is limited to UNITE HERE members, executive and administrative staff of UNITE HERE and its affiliates, and their immediate families. Federal law prohibits UNITE HERE from soliciting contributions from other individuals, and any contribution received from other individuals will not be accepted.
