UAW members from Nevada have asked for our help to campaign for Jacky Rosen for US Senate. She is currently a member of the House of Representatives on the Science, Space and Technology committee, and she is running to replace current Senator Dean Heller, a Republican who has largely voted with Trump. This race is critical to flipping the Senate!
Early voting in Nevada starts the weekend of October 20-21, so we’ll be doing on-the-ground canvassing to help get out the vote. We’ll be working in pairs and will be provided with training when we get to Nevada, so prior canvassing experience is not needed.
We will be coordinating bus transportation from Northern CA to Reno and from Southern CA to Las Vegas with fellow UAW members, and hotel rooms in Reno and Las Vegas will be provided. We will spend Saturday and Sunday campaigning, and then hop on the buses back to California on Sunday afternoon.
This is going to be an important and fun weekend! All Postdocs who want to join are welcome, along with family members, friends, etc. – the more the merrier! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, and RSVP here.
We will be discussing the latest developments in our union; plans for building power and political action; and start our next contract campaign. The meeting will start at 12pm (with lunch), and go until about 5pm. If you have dietary needs (vegan, gluten-free, etc) please indicate on the RSVP form. Please RSVP here!
For non-Joint Council members, there are funds available on a first-come, first-served basis to provide reimbursement for travel expenses – up to $400 per member – to attend the meeting. Please send us an email at email@example.com by Monday, October 1st with an estimated budget if you would like to request reimbursement for travel to the meeting.
There will be childcare available at the meeting. If you will need childcare, please let us know in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
