As you may know, the recall election of Governor Scott Walker is right around the corner on Tuesday, June 5, 2012.
UFCW Local 1994 has dispatched a number of staff and member volunteers to Wisconsin to participate first-hand in the recall fight and elect Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to the governorship. Fortunately, our participation in the biggest labor fight of my generation is not limited to the state of Wisconsin.
Beginning this week, we will be running phone banks out of our union office. The phone banks will be focused on identifying and persuading Wisconsin's voters to get out and vote. The phone banks will run from 3pm to 9pm (staggered shifts to accommodate everyone's different work schedules).
Fight in solidarity, be a part of history, and volunteer to help the labor movement's battle against Governor Scott Walker's right-wing agenda to gut public sector unionism!!!
