The Stand

Ballots in mail; volunteer for Labor Neighbor

This weekend is a critical one for Labor Neighbor, the Washington State Labor Council’s grassroots member-to-member political action program, because voters around the state are now receiving their primary election ballots.

With voter turnout traditionally lower in primary elections, it’s critically important for union members not only to vote, but also to encourage other union members to vote and support candidates who support the values of organized labor: good jobs, strong families, a secure middle class, and a better world for our children.

Through Labor Neighbor, tens of thousands of union members have already been called, visited at home or leafleted at worksites by other union members to stress the importance of the Primary Election on Aug. 7. (See the Labor Neighbor newsletter for more information about LN activities.) Now that voters have their ballots in hand, this weekend’s walks and the ongoing weeknight phone banks need AS MANY VOLUNTEERS AS POSSIBLE.

CLICK HERE to make a commitment TODAY to volunteer to help with this important effort!

The following neighborhood walks will be conducted this Saturday, July 21. Shifts are 9 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. (9:00 training, 9:30 pair up, 12:30 last knock, 1:00 debrief):
