#NYCLaborVotes Weekly Digest 5/18

We are only 5 weeks away from the June 22 Primary Election in New York City and our member-to-member voter outreach is officially underway. With less than 25% of the electorate expected to turn-out in these critical city elections, we must ensure that union-members and their households turn-out in large numbers.  

Together, we can elect worker-friendly candidates and fight for a fair and just recovery for all working families.  Find out how to get involved below!


Saturday, May 22, 10AM: Join NYC Labor Votes as we continue our efforts to support labor-endorsed candidates for New York City.

This Saturday we'll be set up in Heritage Park on Staten Island. Attendees will be reaching out to other union members to educate them about the upcoming primary elections, ranked-choice voting, early voting and our labor-endorsed candidates.

Daily Phone Bank: Join our virtual phone banks to support labor-endorsed candidates.  Phone banks are held daily from 10:30AM - 8:30PM. Sign up for a shift today!
