Union Member Candidate Program

Are you a union member running for office, thinking about a run for public office, or want to help work on campaigns? We want to hear from you! Nobody knows Labor issues better than union members. That's why every year the Minnesota AFL-CIO offers a two day training for perspective candidates and campaign workers. 2024's training is July 20-21.

Over the course of this training attendees will learn from campaign veterans and successful union member candidates about:

  • Campaign Planning (timeline, win number, determining voter universes)
  • Message Development
  • Public Speaking
  • Union Values
  • Building your team and recruiting volunteers
  • Voter Contact
  • Fundraising and Campaign Finance Rules
  • Endorsements
  • Social/Digital Media
  • And more!

Please fill out this form and a member of our staff will follow up with you about the training and other details. If you have questions, please contact Field Director Haylee Hilton at hhilton@mnaflcio.org.
