The deadline has now passed to seek the GBLC's endorsement for 2021.

The Greater Boston Labor Council endorses candidates that share our values and will work towards passing and upholding pro-union and progressive policies in their elected positions. Candidates seeking municipal office in any of the GBLC's cities and towns (listed at the bottom of this website page) are eligible to request the labor council's endorsement. Candidates seeking state office in our region should contact the Massachusetts AFL-CIO about endorsement. 

Please email us to get started. The process is as follows - dates and deadlines will be made available when they are established.

  1. Email Rachael Running, GBLC Communications Organizer ([email protected]) and Darlene Lombos, Executive Secretary-Treasurer ([email protected]) to request endorsement.
  2. Fill out and return a GBLC Candidate Questionnaire. Download and consider signing the GBLC's Pledge to the Working Class (below). Questionnaires are due by June 1, 2021 at 5pm. 
  3. Complete a Candidate Interview with the GBLC Political Committee (held virtually during pandemic).
  4. Attend a GBLC C.O.P.E (Committee on Political Education) meeting and receive 2/3 approval by the Committee and then receive a 2/3 ratification vote at the  General Delegate's Body meeting that immediately follows.
