Union Members Reach Out to Wisconsin Workers

Posted on July 29, 2008 | in Labor News | by

Sue Ledbetter, Wisconsin state director for the Labor 2008 program, reports that leafleting continues at worksites all around the state.

In the critical battleground state of Wisconsin, union voters will make the difference this fall, and union volunteers are busy mobilizing for the fall election. At worksites and by going door to door, these volunteers are doing the union member-to-member contact that is essential to a strong, educated union vote. Last week, we leafleted at two different United Steelworkers (USW) worksites in the state: New Page, Local 2-9 in Kimberly, and Campbell Wrapper, Local 2-6050 in De Pere. Union volunteers got the word out on the differences between Sens. Barack Obama and John McCain on key issues.
