Retiree leaders in Corpus Christi are receiving their vote-by-mail ballots! Other eligible Texans will be receiving them during the coming week. The door is swinging shut on the 2022 elections! 

At all levels, labor is working even harder to save American democracy. Our phone banking parties at 6:30PM on Mondays and Wednesdays at 1408 N Washington continue. We will rally downtown to push early voting on the morning of October 24. We will push vote-by-mail applications until the final day that they can be received, October 28. The Texas Alliance for Retired Americans will hold a statewide on-line webinar at 6:30PM on October 6. Register here. Contact jtomlinson.dallasaflcio@gmail.com for the Dallas AFL-CIO and judy4tara@aol.com for Texas Alliance for Retired Americans. Get involved now!

Labor is Breaking Through

"Brother Solidarity," Tevita Uhutafe, was with the flight attendants

Transport Workers Union Local 556 received nationwide news coverage for their pickets at Southwest Airlines this week. Even the Dallas Morning News, which resists any favorable events for working families, ran a substantial article with photo. During the previous week, WFAA-TV, which is also affiliated with the local newspaper, briefly reported on a voter registration rally staged by the Dallas Chapter of Texas Alliance for Retired Americans.

 Labor enjoys great popularity today. We are the main hope for success on November 8. Even if, God forbid, we lose the election, labor is the main hope to withstand the consequences.
