There are more than 68,000 veterans that live in Alaska. Many of which our Union brothers and sisters that have served in the Armed Forces. Alaska’s labor movement has always worked to get veterans into good paying jobs through programs like Helmets to Hardhats. The Alaska Committee will operate close with the National Union Veterans Council, AFL-CIO. The National Union Veterans Council brings working-class veterans together to speak out on the issues that impact veterans the most, especially the need for good jobs and a strong, fully funded and staffed VA. ~Additionally, they hold private enterprise and elected officials accountable for their words and actions. The Union Veterans Council believes wholeheartedly that the ability for someone to self-identify as “pro-veteran” isn’t determined by what lapel pin they don or what catchphrase they employ; veterans face real issues that require real actions—constructive actions that lead to positive solutions. The Union Veterans Council, is committed to fighting every day for those who have fought for us.
