The New Jersey State AFL-CIO kicked off its annual Labor Walks today in several locations, including Burlington CLC, CWA 1036 in Mount Holly; Essex/West Hudson CLC, RWDSU 108 in Maplewood; Monmouth/Ocean CLC, IBEW 400 in Wall; Passaic CLC, UFCW 1262 in Clifton; and Union CLC, SWMIA 22 in Cranford.
With Election Day less than two months away, volunteers came out in droves to support the labor movement and help spread the word about our endorsed candidates.
As always, we thank all volunteers for their hard work and dedication. Your involvement is of the utmost importance to the New Jersey State AFL-CIO and our endorsed union candidates.
New Jersey will play a pivotal role in this November's elections, which are shaping up to be among the most consequential in recent U.S. history. And it’s up to us to send a strong message to Washington by electing officials who share our values.
Our candidates are fighting for an economy that works for all of us, not just corporations and the wealthy. They are fighting to make healthcare more affordable, to raise the minimum wage, and to ensure equal pay for equal work.
Walking door-to-door is key to winning elections. Even with all the new technology that’s out there, nothing can replicate the impact of one-on-one conversations. That’s why we need you to walk with us every Saturday that you can and to educate your fellow union members. Whether you’ve walked with us before or this is your first time, your voice is essential to our success.
Once again, we thank all those who volunteered today, and we encourage all members to please join us on Saturdays through Election Day to support the candidates who will stand up for working families.
Elections matter. Let’s keep up the fight and secure victory for labor in November.
