“Union families are very excited to welcome Senator Elizabeth Warren to Milwaukee and see Senator Tammy Baldwin and Mandela Barnes as we make our final push to get working people to the polls on Tuesday,” said Stephanie Bloomingdale, President of the Wisconsin AFL-CIO. “It’s time to restore the rights and freedoms of workers by voting for working family champions like Tammy Baldwin, Tony Evers, Mandela Barnes, Josh Kaul and union-endorsed candidates up and down the ballot. Union members have been doing the work, having conversations with union members at doorsteps, on the phone, and in the workplace on the importance of these mid-term elections.”
Wisconsin Labor 2018 is dedicated to mobilizing working people to elect pro-worker, pro-union candidates in races up and down the ballot in Wisconsin. Since May, union members have been knocking on doors, making phone calls, receiving mail and holding worksite actions in support of labor’s endorsed candidates.
