DC-CORE Call to Action: WTU Elections are HERE
WTU Ballots have been arriving in peoples' mailboxes.
Our goal is to increase our union's power by increasing turnout. Read on for strategies on how you can do your part for this movement.
Our message is simple: VOTE.
If a member has not gotten their ballot they should contact Valerie Kilby (email@example.com) and cc the WTU Elections Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the WTU General Vice President Regina Bell (email@example.com)
Don't be afraid to share who you are voting for and why if your members have not made up their minds yet. Personal endorsements go a long way!
At our General Body Meeting on June 8th our members shared strategies they are using to increase turnout. Find one that works for you!
David: Play music at the beginning and end of the day in the hallway and talk to members in the building really quickly about voting.
Karen: Messaged everyone in the building to check their mailbox.
Lisa: Have a ballot party, offer a light breakfast and make sure everyone's questions about voting are answered. Those who wanted to gave the ballots to her as building rep to turn in to the post office to make sure they were done correctly and counted.
Paige: Reaching out to people you are close to and connecting with them as a ballot buddy
