This Election

This election is more important than any election in any of our lifetimes. We need to get out and walk and phone back for candidates that are labor friendly. One of the most important races and one of the races that is the closest in the race for attorney general. Kwame Raoul has been a strong advocate for labor unions and labor rights for his entire public career. The republican candidate will most surely support efforts to reduce or eliminate our union rights, our ability to organize, to defend our members against management overreach and to have a positive a work environment. The other candidate will also oppose and actively move to destroy the social programs that benefit our clients and working families in Illinois. With the other candidate there would be no consent decree for CPD, for example.

Everyday through out the state and every Saturday and Sunday at 1515 N Harlem Ave., in Oak Park at 10:00am AFSCME mobilizes groups of people to go out and knock doors and phone bank. There are other opportunities in other locations as well. I will be at 1515 N Harlem Ave in Oak Park on Sunday.  If you live in a different area and want to volunteer we will get you signed up with someone to volunteer. WE NEED TO STEP UP FROM TODAY UNTIL ELECTION DAY!!!!!!
