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.
