 More than 1,500 union members will be on the ground knocking on doors and making phone calls today to fellow union members in order to boost Election Day turnout, according to Illinois AFL-CIO President Michael T. Carrigan.

 “Union members have been working tirelessly up and down the state for weeks educating and activating union families for this election,” Carrigan said. “We know that the union vote will be crucial to countering the messages of corporate-backed candidates and their allies. We’re backing candidates and issues that will create and protect jobs, ensure strong and vital public education, and deny trade deals that are unfair to workers in Illinois.”

 The Election Day effort comes on the heels of a months-long education campaign with union families including 750,000 live phone calls, 700,000 worksite leaflets, 30,000 home visits and more than one million mailings.
