Here’s a crucial reason for working people to do all they can to help Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock win the Georgia Senate runoff elections in January – federal aid to states, cities, towns and schools.

If Ossoff and Warnock prevail, there will be a pro-worker majority in the U.S. Senate. Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, as president of the Senate, will cast the tie-breaking vote when the chamber is deadlocked.

This holiday season, thousands of families will have to decide between buying food, paying rent, or keeping the heat on during winter nights. Without the help and generosity of the LA Union family, many of our union sisters and brothers will be unable to afford holiday presents for their children.

After months of your tireless efforts showing your support for workers protecting public health and the hard work

President-elect Joe Biden and Vice president-elect Kamala Harris on Monday brought together business and union leaders, including AFSCME President Lee Saunders, for a virtual meeting to discuss an economic recovery agenda for the country.

Following the meeting, Biden warned of a “dark winter” ahead for the nation and highlighted consensus among the labor leaders and CEOs alike on the need to fund the front lines.

It was bad enough that the Trump administration failed miserably in its response to the coronavirus pandemic, ignoring the science and failing to come up with a national strategy.

It was pathetic and tragic when Republicans in Congress failed to summon the courage to support the everyday heroes who saved our communities by funding the front lines.

With so much at stake for working families in the 2020 election, AFSCME members across the country stood up to the challenge once again. Although the pandemic prevented us from putting thousands of boots on the ground as we normally do, AFSCME members still made a huge difference in key races across the country.

Help us get out the vote (GOTV)! It is important to elect local officials that support our work and the families that we support with that work.  This weekend, there are opportunities to help in the Herb Wesson for LA County Supervisor campaign and the Long Beach City Council races.  You do not have to live in those districts to help drop off literature. 

Please see the attached fliers and feel free to share with interested colleagues, family members or anyone else. The election is just a few days away, so let's make the final push to get pro-labor candidates elected!
