|Gov. Phil Murphy is the labor movement’s pro-worker choice for re-election, and voting is already underway in New Jersey. That’s why hundreds of union volunteers walked from Central Labor Councils all over the state on Saturday, September 25, to educate their brothers and sisters about the New Jersey State AFL-CIO’s endorsed candidates.
The labor walk participants delivered flyers explaining why union members should vote for Murphy, Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver, candidates for the state Legislature and some 60 Labor Candidates, along with reminders that New Jersey citizens have three ways to vote this year: Vote-by-Mail, which started September 18; Early Voting by machine starting October 13, and in-person voting by machine on Election Day, November 2.
Brothers and sisters from every sector of labor, including the IBEW, AFT, AFSCME, Carpenters, CWA, Teamsters, Plumbers, IFPTE, Musicians, OPEIU and other unions, volunteered their morning to get out the word across the state.
They distributed information on issues that highlighted our pro-labor candidates’ records. The flyers also spotlighted the candidates’ commitment to growing the post-pandemic economy and ensuring New Jersey’s working families benefit from good education and affordable, accessible health care.
Labor walks will continue every Saturday through October 30, and on Election Day.
Volunteer with us! Use your talents, time and experience to help others in our labor movement become more knowledgeable about our pro-worker candidates endorsed by the New Jersey State AFL-CIO and its affiliated unions.
