Region III kicked-off this year’s Regional Victory Conferences with a bang as local and national leaders met in Columbus, OH for three days in May. In addition to highlighting pro-working family candidates running for office in the upcoming midterm elections, attendees participated in a series of workshops to give them the tools they need to build union power through the UWUA Member-to-Member program.

The other four UWUA regions will hold their victory conferences before the mid-term elections so as to maximize the power of utility workers at their worksites, in their communities and at the ballot box. Along with candidates seeking election to local, state and national offices, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan each addressed the conference through video.
