Labor Neighbor, the Washington State Labor Council’s grassroots member-to-member political action program, engages union members to inform fellow union members and their families about the candidates and ballot measures that have earned labor’s endorsement, and why. Labor Neighbor volunteers distribute flyers that compare where the candidates’ stand on issues that are important to Washington’s working families. They don’t tell union members how to vote, they just explain who earned their union’s support and why, and then urge fellow members to decide on their own and VOTE!

WSLC-affiliated unions can order customized versions of these flyers with their organizations’ names and logos. Check out the flyers and just email WSLC Communications Director David Groves, attaching your logo, to request your custom versions.

Bremerton Day of Action from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13 in the 26th LD. Meet at the SEIU 925 office at 2602 Burwell St. in Bremerton.
