2014 General Election Voter Contact Activities

10531218_561949357261621_2517806097326198830_o.jpgAs a Union, we have a lot at stake in next year's legislative session beginning in January.  

  • We have an interest arbitration award to fund for our DOC members, which must be voted on by all our legislators Up or Down.
  • We are working hard to pass statewide Paid Sick Days legislation to ensure that no one, including our the wait staff and cooks in restaurants where we take our families, don't have to come to work sick or go without a day's pay
  • We will continue to lead in our fight against bad legislation for working families like Right to Work (for less) legislation, rollbacks to our pension system for public employees, and cuts to our strong Worker's Compensation system.


We absolutely can't win on these priorities if we don't have the votes in the State House and State Senate.  It's simple math.

That's where your help is critical.  We can't win in November unless we get the vote out, and the most effective way to do that is to talk to voters -- on the phone and on their doorsteps.  That work makes a difference in getting voters to turn in their ballot.

You can sign up below to participate in any voter contact event happening in your area.  While there may not be an event happening in your local area, the below races are the most competitive and where our work will have the most impact.
