Help Elect Pro-Labor Candidates
As union members we need to fight for our jobs and benefits. Elected officials and the laws they pass directly impact our livelihood. Its why we need to be a force on political campaigns. When our members get involved and vote, we have more influence in government.
With that goal in mind, I am calling on all members to get involved over the next two days, September 12th and 13th, to help elect candidates that support unionized labor. There is an important election on Thursday, 9/13, and we need to ensure pro-labor individuals are elected.
There are several locations on Long Island you can go to. Please remember to sign in with the Local 66 rep so we can track who is volunteering their time for the union.
Sign In Locations
Priority - 15 East Merrick Rd, Freeport. Street parking is scarce, so park in the municipal lot behind the building or at the Burger King across the street if you're just running in and out.
Shift Times (Wednesday & Thursday):
At the Freeport location, Burke Tomaselli from the Building Trades Council will be stationed at the office at 3pm. Please report to him.
If there are any members who aren't available at those times and want to do train stations, there will be opportunities available on Wednesday and Thursday to be working the Freeport, Hempstead and Minneola LIRR Stations starting at 6:30am.
Please let Local 66 Political Coordinator Josh Slaughter, know when you plan on volunteering. Thank you in advance for your help. He can be reached on his cell at 631-456-1718.
