Machinists on the Ground, Getting Out the Vote for Pro-Labor Midterm Election Candidates

IAM members across the United States have hit the ground, advocating to fellow Machinists Union members for pro-labor candidates running in the 2022 Midterm Elections.

In the weeks leading up to November 8, IAM political volunteers have been going door-to-door in battleground states like Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Nevada, to remind IAM members to vote, and to vote specifically for candidates that support workers and workers’ rights.

But members aren’t just delivering info on labor-supported candidates at doorsteps, they’re also making calls and talking to the other members in their shops about the importance of electing worker-friendly public officials.

As part of the Machinists Union’s member-to-member program, which has been active since September, member volunteers have made thousands of calls to IAM members to remind them to vote.
