Tuesday, November 7 will mark the end of a labor-wide effort to reach out to union families across the U.S. to tap into the groundswell for change after six years of one of the most anti-labor administrations in history. Volunteers from hundreds of lodges have spent hours manning phone banks, handbilling plant gates and visiting union households to make sure working families know the issues and know who is working for them or against them.
“Tomorrow it’s up to union households across America to show up and cast their ballots,” said IAM President Tom Buffenbarger. “Our members have done an incredible job educating our members and their families about candidates who are on our side and those who aren’t. On Election Day, don’t leave it to someone else to decide who wins and who loses. Show up, cast your vote and let your voice be heard.”
