Your job as a professional mariner is directly dependent on what happens in Washington, D.C. The voluntary contributions that MM&P members and employees make to the Political Contribution Fund are used to support the election of pro-maritime, pro-labor candidates. By supporting our PCF, you play a direct role in the political process by helping elect individuals who, regardless of political party affiliation, are committed to supporting a larger, more competitive U.S.-flag merchant marine and to working to prevent your job from being eliminated or outsourced to foreign mariners working on foreign-flag ships.
Who can contribute to the MM&P PCF?
All active members, retired members and employees of the Masters, Mates & Pilots, as well as their immediate families, can contribute to the PCF.
