Tri-County Members ,

As a machinist, I know the value of a hard day’s work. So I work hard every day to defeat those who want to make it harder for us to feed our families.

I know that if we work hard enough this election cycle, we will win. If you join us and volunteer, we can make sure that working families have a fair shot at a prosperous future.

Join me in fighting for a better Missouri. Volunteer so we can win the 2016 elections.

This is an important election, particularly here in Missouri. Outside interests are spending a lot of money to attack the freedom of working people with policies like “right to work” and paycheck deception. If we let big corporate interests win, it will damage the rights of working people to come together and make better lives for themselves and their families.

Every door you knock on, every phone call you make gets us one step closer to victory. Not just winning on Election Day, but winning on issues that will be important to all of Missouri’s working families for years to come.

Volunteer today to fight back against corporate special interests.

In Solidarity,

Mike Louis,
President, Missouri AFL-CIO


Labor Day was not just a day off


Labor Day was fought for by the labor movement to honor workers that have contributed to the strength and prosperity of our country. The very things unions fight for like fair wages, safe workplaces, benefits, and the right to collectively bargain, are under attack here in Missouri. Many of our elected officials want to weaken labor unions, which would in turn weaken our state’s prosperity. Workers must unite together, like our forefathers did, to protect our rights and the rights of future generations.

The Missouri AFL-CIO is asking for your help to protect our rights. Election Day is just over two months away and this election will decide whether or not the labor movement will survive. We are asking you and your family to join us on September 10th for our Election Kick-Off Events.

Our children deserve a future where workers are treated with the dignity they deserve. We will not sit idly by and let our rights fade into history.

Tri-County Members,

The upcoming primary August 2nd will be a very important election for Labor to keep RTW and other anti labor laws out of Missouri. I know that most of us usually vote Democrat but it does no good in this primary to take a Democratic Ballot; there are none of our democratic friends that have opposition on August 2nd. We must take a Republican ballot and vote for the ones that will keep voting against anti labor bills. If your not sure who your Senator are State Rep is go to:  http://www.senate.mo.gov/LegisLookup/default.aspx/default.aspx  and type in your address.

Below are the republicans that we have endorsed that have an opponent. on the 2nd.

Anne Zerr – Senate District 23rd

Tom Hannegan – State Rep. 65th

Chrissy Sommer – State Rep. 106th

Rick Lucas – State Rep. 107th

Jeff Schwentker – State Rep. 108th
