As Democrats we believe we must support Delaware’s working families. Delaware Democrats recognize the essential role that organized labor has played in bringing a measure of fairness and safety to Delaware’s workforce. Organized labor is necessary to protect and safeguard the rights of workers to organize and collectively bargain. The Delaware Democratic Party supports:

  • The right of individuals to organize and bargain collectively,
  • The protection of organized labor’s ability to engage people in the political process,
  • Enacting a livable wage,
  • Ensuring a healthy and safe work environment,
  • Encouraging an open line of communication between labor leaders and leaders of government,
  • Legislating progressive worker compensation protections,
  • Encouraging employers to provide short and long term disability insurance,
  • Requiring employers to provide adequate unemployment insurance, and
  • Encouraging greater funding for job training and retraining of displaced workers.
