I wanted to give you an update of what your lobby team has been doing. In addition to monitoring our targeted legislators for their positions on a the veto override, On Tuesday and Wednesday members of the lobby team met in House District 144 and went door to door holding “porch meetings” with union members talking about RTW, the veto override and collecting hand written letters in opposition to an override. I believe we were very successful, as we were received very well by the members at the doors and able to collect 35 letters to the representative.
I would like to express my appreciation to the members of the lobby team who joined us, from IUPAT, CWA, LIUNA, SMART, UFCW and USW.
Because of the success of this canvass, the lobby team will continue to set these canvasses up in the targeted districts throughout the Summer. I’d like to open the invitation for anyone from your organization to join us. A calendar of walks dates and locations will be forthcoming.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
