For Missouri union members, your local Labor Club is your voice in the political process

0
125

There are Labor-political clubs throughout the St. Louis area and other parts of Missouri. These clubs provide members with information on pending legislation, interview and evaluate political candidates, make recommendations to the Greater St. Louis Labor Council for COPE endorsements and provide volunteers for leafleting and poll workers. They are the first crucial, and very important, step toward electing worker-friendly candidates.

Union members are encouraged to become a member of the Labor Club in their vicinity. To join, come to the next meeting, or contact a spokesperson for the club nearest you.
