The Rick Scott Political Activism Award is presented each year to an individual member, a local union, or a group of members or local unions in recognition of outstanding work in electoral, legislative and other political activity on behalf of our union.

We were thrilled to honor these members with our 2019 awards at our 15th annual convention in October. Congratulations to all - and thank you for your hard work and dedication to our movement!
