TWU is now accepting applications for the Michael J. Quill Scholarship Fund. This scholarship will offer 15 college-bound dependents of TWU members with a scholarship worth $4,800. This scholarship will be paid out per year in the amount of $1,200 to winners who continue to be eligible over their four-year course of study.

The union has been honoring our founder with these scholarships since 1969. Quill Scholarship awards have benefitted hundreds of TWU families. Sons and daughters of our members in transit, railroad and air transportation, utilities, public employment, space installations, and allied industries are among those who began their college educations with the help of TWU’s signature scholarship.

Election

Why vote?
Voting matters both to the health of the American political system and to the people who participate in it.

Who Votes Counts.

Elected officials know who votes.If your community is turning out well below other neighborhoods, elected officials will pay less attention, make fewer appearances and fewer appeals to your neighborhoods. Who votes has a powerful impact on public policy and government. Your constituents have policy and political concerns –whether the direction of an issue or priorities of public budgets – that won’t be heard if they don’t vote.

Voting also carries Benefits to those who Participate in it.

People who vote are associated with a host of positive civic, health and social factors.
Among the most studied are that voters are known to be more engaged in other activities like volunteering or contacting their election official. They are more informed about local affairs and a contributor to their neighborhood’s “social capital.” Voters live in communities where there is more trust and people have contact with their neighbors. They are more concerned about their communities and peers and have a greater sense of their ability to impact the world around them.

While these are correlations that work both ways, voting is an important part.
