Election Day 2014 is very soon -- November 4. A lot is at stake in this election for union members and working people. If pro-corporate anti-union extremists win a few more seats in the U.S. Senate, they'll have control of both houses of Congress, and they can do tremendous harm to workers' rights. They are also committed to wrecking Social Security, Medicare, and many other programs that workers have paid for and depend on.
They're also trying to take over more state governments so they can destroy public employees' rights to join unions and negotiate contracts, as the did in Wisconsin, and pass so-called "right-to-work" laws to weaken unions in private industry and cut wages, as they've recently done in Michigan and Indiana.
The UE national union has prepared eight leaflets for UE locals and members, summarizing the issues in this election for workers, and they are all available for download at the links below. The "get-out-the-vote" (GOTV) flyer explains the issues facing us nationally. The other seven leaflets deal with specific election races in Connecticut, Iowa, Illinois, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
Download the leaflets that are useful to you, and print out enough copies to share with your co-workers. They'll print well in color or in black-and-white. If you need to, you can save the file on a thumb drive or CD and bring it to a commercial copy shop (or even email it to them), and have them print the leaflets for you there.
