Calling All Union Members!

One lesson from the last presidential election was the fact that our candidate did not get as much support from organized labor as she needed. Exit polls and stories from around the country made the same points. Democrats didn’t have real plans to get more people back to work or better paid. That we ignored labor. Never mind that her opponent told lies to get their votes. It worked. So now, we must really go out and earn the respect and vote of organized labor. And this means we must do it for the next four years, not just when we have a candidate to elect.

We are considering a program to present at one of our general meetings whereby we actively reach out to our union brothers and sisters. To prepare for that, I would like to hear from union members in our 46th Dems. If you are a union member, please contact me. I want to hear what you think.  What can we do to make unions stronger in Washington, and nationally?  I mean this on an every-day basis, not just at election time. Ultimately, it will greatly aid in our effort to win the next presidential election, as well as turn some GOP House seats Blue, along with WA. State Legislative seats blue around this state. Remember, we can’t get our platforms enacted in Olympia and Washington D.C. without electing many more Dems. And that will not happen without organized labor on our side. And we on their side. 

Looking forward to hearing from you.
