Get Out the Vote: What You Can Do
This election is a watershed moment for our democracy, as voters are asked to vote on the future of our state and for our nation. Local 1000 members have joined the fight by participating in phone banks, texting voters, and volunteering their time to ensure the future of our democracy is one in which we all can participate.
We will decide whether Uber and Lyft drivers receive basic worker guarantees like minimum wage and sick days (Proposition 22). We will decide if we will fully fund our schools to bring back the education for which California was known (Proposition 15).
A global pandemic has taught us that electing the right leadership is literally a matter of life and death. This election is a watershed moment for our democracy, and if the battle to protect working Californians is going to be fought in the political arena, Local 1000 will do what it takes to make sure our members and those who are important to us are represented in that fight.
We invite you to join in by contacting fellow Local 1000 members and our communities about the importance of this election and how important it is to vote. There are also phone and text banking shifts available to help spread the word on your union’s positions on these important propositions. To sign-up, visit seiu1000.org/politics to choose the shift—day, evening, or Saturday—you prefer.
