Workers Revved Up to Take Colorado Back in 2008
With out-of-state special interests pushing an anti-worker agenda for the November election in Colorado, union activists are coming together to take back the state. Thanks to Mike Cerbo, executive director of the Colorado AFL-CIO, for this blog about a political training session last weekend in Denver.
Last weekend, you could hear the beginning of a righteous noise rumbling across Colorado, as nearly 200 union members packed into the Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 68 hall for a two-day political training for the Colorado Labor 2008 campaign.
Local union leaders, coordinators, potential release staffers and rank-and-file activists from 24 unions or union-related groups from across the state participated in the training in Denver, attending workshops on recruiting and retaining volunteers, moving volunteers to activism, member-to-member mobilization and much more.
