The second step is to contact political director Mariah Warwick and volunteer to help campaign.

Texas AFL-CIO continues the daily battle against the worst Texas legislation and for the best. Some of the outstanding bills to uphold democracy have been filed by our own labor-endorsed North Texas Representatives. Keep up with developments by contacting Ed Sills and asking for regular updates.

Who Sets Labor's Tactics?

National AFL-CIO recently cautioned labor's supporters about which actions lead to the best results for working families. Specifically, a number of organizations are apparently setting their own strategies for winning the union drive for Amazon workers. Well meaning labor supporters are being asked to join support groups and participate in actions that were not part of the Amazon workers' strategy.

The argument is not about the best strategies. The argument is about WHO decides the best way to win, and those decisions must rest with the workers who are putting their careers and their families' lives on the line.
