Four key takeaways from labor's efforts:
Seven hundred and forty-three (and counting!) union members were elected to office from the U.S. Senate to state capitols, including Maryland Assemblyman-elect Gabriel Acevero (UFCW), U.S. Sen.-elect Jacky Rosen (UNITE HERE) of Nevada; Michigan Gov.-elect Gretchen Whitmer (AFT); Minnesota Gov.-elect Tim Walz (Education Minnesota); and U.S. Reps.-elect Jahana Hayes (CEA and AFSA) of Connecticut and Ilhan Omar (AFSCME) of Minnesota.
Union-busting Govs. Scott Walker (Wis.) and Bruce Rauner (Ill.) were sent packing, and labor elected an army of pro-worker governors in Wisconsin, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Colorado, Maine and Kansas.
Union members knocked on more than 2.3 million doors this election cycle.
Unions distributed 5 million fliers at more than 4,600 worksites, sent more than 260,000 texts and delivered over 12 million pieces of direct mail.
