Machinists Ramp Up GOTV Efforts in Final Push for 2022 Midterms

Nov 8, 2022 | Politics & Legislative News

In the days leading up to Midterm Election Day 2022, IAM political volunteers have revved up efforts to encourage fellow Machinists Union members to vote in favor of pro-labor candidates running in battle-ground states across the country.

Electing pro-labor, worker-supportive candidates is imperative to protecting working families, their jobs, their pensions, their Social Security, their right to organize, and their safety at work.

Labor unions have been mobilizing for months to educate voters on the candidates. In a final push to energize voters and garner support for labor-endorsed candidates, Machinists Union members have rallied at GOTV events in Philadelphia, Cleveland, and more. 

Political figures, including former U.S. President Barack Obama and current U.S. President Joe Biden, as well as labor leaders like AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler and AFT President Randi Weingarten, spoke at the rallies in support of candidates who have vowed to stand with workers if elected.
