Labor Fights in the Election Arena

In the Dallas elections on May 6, the big money and the establishment newspaper did everything they could think of against some of labor's endorsed candidates. It didn't work out well for them, but it did for us! 

Dallas Labor Scores Well in May 6 Election


Tiffinni Young will need labor's help to win her runoff election
After careful information gathering and deliberation, the Dallas AFL-CIO delegates endorsed in all but one of the Dallas City Council races plus one race in Mesquite. All but two of our candidates succeeded in the first round of voting on May 1. Two are in runoffs.
Another runoff takes place in District 6 where we had no endorsed candidate. Authorities are holding back the election results until they finish investigating possible voter fraud, but delegates expect to be able to decide at our May 18 regular meeting whether or not to endorse one of the two remaining candidates for the June 10 runoff election.
Whatever we decide, we'll continue to throw ourselves into making sure that working families are represented in the June 10th results. Starting May 20 at 10 AM, we'll be working the streets and the phone lines from 1408 N Washington # 240. Plan to join us!
