Unions get out the vote in Georgia ahead of crucial runoff

The labor movement showed up in full force over the weekend to campaign in the U.S. Senate runoff in Georgia. AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler, AFGE National President Everett Kelley, AFSCME President Lee Saunders, Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) International President John Costa, Ironworkers General President Eric Dean, Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) President Jimmy Williams, and SEIU International President Mary Kay Henry all took part in a rally in Atlanta to get out the vote for Sen. Raphael Warnock.


After the barnburning labor rally, union members hit the doors and campaigned their hearts out to secure every single vote. The labor movement can win this race, but it's likely to be a close result on Tuesday.

Join the AFL-CIO's virtual phone back while there's still time. [link removed] Log in to Zoom on Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET to call union voters in Georgia. Together, let's win this race and make lasting progress for America's working people.

Quick: Help save fishing jobs

Union members who fish for a living are at risk of losing their jobs. Today, the Virginia Marine Resource Commission (VMRC) is having a meeting where they will take a vote on potential new restrictions that will end good union jobs in Reedville, VA, where commercial fishermen -- members of UFCW Local 400 -- have fished these waters for generations. The Virginia AFL-CIO urges your participation in sending the VMRC a letter "to stand in solidarity with our union family to show our opposition -- let's tell the VMRC to vote NO!"
