Elections Matter

Election Day is just weeks away and if we’re going to have leaders who will deal with the pandemic, protect workers’ rights, access to affordable healthcare, climate change, social justice, strong economy, affordable housing, safety regulations, and protect RBG’s legacy, our democracy is at stake, we must vote like our lives depend on it – because they do.

Voter turnout will decide the election, so union members and their families must vote to decide our future for years to come. A Bay Area civil rights legend, Betty Reid Soskin, one of the original Rosie’s from Rosie the Riveter turned 99 years old, her advice to the country was to go out and vote. Soskin said "I don't think there's ever been an election that's more important than this one, ever, since a great experiment began in 1776. Someone who has lived through over 20 presidential elections in her life says this election is the most important you have to take that seriously!!!
