Labor to Neighbor Needs You on Aug. 16

WFSE members have a great opportunity to support Gov. Gregoire by signing up for the last big Labor to Neighbor walk before the primary. It's extremely important we remind our fellow union members about the primary election, so we really encourage you to participate.

On Saturday, Aug. 16, volunteers will gather in Aberdeen, Everett, Seattle, Spokane and Tacoma. We'll canvass from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm, and there will be a BBQ lunch waiting for you when you finish.

These walks are really fun, and the staff of the WA St Labor Council makes it easy, even for first-time volunteers. You're provided with training, a script, a list and a map. And you only have to talk to fellow union members who are almost always nice and supportive.

If walking isn't your bag, or if you're able to do even more, you can always sign up for a Labor to Neighbor phone bank. Phone banks are happening Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in Seattle, Tacoma and Everett.

To sign up for Labor to Neighbor contact April Sims at 1-800-562-6002 or e-mail Don't forget! WFSE members who volunteer not only receive the highly-coveted "WFSE for Gregoire" t-shirt, but also get to bask in the glow of making a difference on behalf of their own economic self-interest! -- Dennis
