A grassroots network of labor organizations and activists committed to protecting the upcoming election has been growing quickly in recent weeks. More than 60 labor organizations—local unions, state federations and Central Labor Councils, national unions, and other workplace-based groups – held an online planning meeting last week and resolutions to mobilize post-election have been passed all over the country (including by the MWC in September) “and plans are being made to bring our members out into the street to stop Trump from stealing the election,” say organizers of Labor Action To Defend Democracy. “We are building mobilizing power from the bottom up, with a focus on the possibility that we will need to build up to work stoppages in key places. Labor can make the difference in the post-election fight to protect democracy.” The next meeting of LADD is this Thursday at 8p; email Gene Bruskin at [email protected] for details.
