LABOR UNIONS HOST HUGE EARLY VOTING EVENT over 40 unions plan to get their members to the polls in historic day of early voting
Memphis, TN -- this Saturday, October 27 at 10am at Mississippi Blvd Church (70 N Bellevue Blvd, 38104), over forty unions associated with the AFL-CIO Central Labor Council of Memphis and West Tennessee will host a big early voting event called #VoteTogether #UnionStrong. With more than 40 local unions in Memphis, union leaders are mobilizing their members to the polls in order to make an impact in key political races.
"The are over 50,000 union members in the city of Memphis. We're coming together to show our power not just in the workplace, but at the ballot box," said Margaret Cook, Vice President of the Memphis Chapter of United Campus Workers Local 3865. She went on to say "We know through sheer numbers alone we can make an impact and even flip some districts, and that's our goal."
Elected officials such as G.A. Hardaway plan to greet union members and thank them for their effort to increase voter turn-out. A long-time proponent of workers' rights, State Representative Hardaway, has co-sponsored bills to change the state's minimum wage from $7.25 to $15 per hour.
"We know that labor has the people. We know that Tennessee hasn't been a very friendly place to unions. That's going to change because we are proud to be union members who vote" said Jeffrey Lichtenstein, Secretary of the Memphis Central Labor Council.
Wearing red, labor leaders expect a big crowd and a line outside the door for this special early voting event. For inquires or interviews please contact Jayanni Webster at 901-864-9507 or firstname.lastname@example.org
