Weather permitting, union members will be hitting the doors of their fellow union members across the state of Maryland this weekend as the 2018 Labor to Labor GOTV effort kicks off. “Labor's Member to Member program works!” says Maryland State and DC AFL-CIO president Donna Edwards. “We proved that in Missouri last month.” Click here for details -- and sign-up links -- on labor walks in Montgomery, Prince George’s, Howard, Frederick, Baltimore and Wicomico counties, as well as Northern Virginia. “We talk to all members regardless of party and can have turnout of union members as high as 70% for our candidates,” Edwards adds. “In Maryland we have about 500,000 union members and families to reach with labor's message.” For information on District of Columbia canvassing, contact David Dzidzienyo at [email protected].
