UPW Endorses Clinton for President in 2016

Hillary Clinton

The UPW State Political Action Committee met on March 15, 2016. In a unanimous decision the committee voted to endorse former First Lady, US Senator and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Presidential Election.

As the first local union in the State of Hawaii to endorse Clinton, UPW State Director Dayton Nakanelua said Clinton was the right choice for labor in his review of the candidates. Sharing in our values and a proven advocate for labor, Nakanelua said Clinton has the necessary momentum to defeat what looks like a strong anti-labor agenda in the opposition.

Nakanelua stressed the importance of members attending Democratic Party Precinct Meetings on March 26 to participate in preference polls, asking members of the State Political Action Committee to get the word out with members in their divisions. Registration at the Democratic Party precinct meetings on March 26 begins at 11 am with polling to commence at 1 pm.

In addition, Nakanelua encourages members who attend Democratic Precinct Meetings to run as Delegates to the State Democratic Convention. While the Union cannot reimburse for airfare and hotel accommodations, members elected delegate who attend the convention will be reimbursed convention fees.
