STATEMENT FROM RICHARD LANIGAN, PRESIDENT OF THE OFFICE AND PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYEES INTERNATIONAL UNION (OPEIU), AFL-CIO ON TUESDAY’S MIDTERM ELECTION RESULTS

To put the blue wave in context, 46,466,425 people voted for Democratic Senate candidates and 33,239,469 people voted for Republican Senate candidates, resulting in Democrats losing a net 2 seats in the senate. 

While that might not be considered a blue wave, millions of working people mobilized to vote for representatives who support their issues. Yesterday’s midterm results mean there will not be a rollback of Social Security or the elimination of safeguards for the millions of Americans with pre-existing health conditions.

With more women and people of color in history now taking their place in the House and anti-worker governors such as Scott Walker roundly voted out of office, the working people of this nation have made it clear they want leaders who reflect them and their values and who will work to protect their hard-fought rights and freedoms.

Tomorrow is Election Day

The most important midterm election in modern history is tomorrow. Are you ready to vote?

So much is at stake at the ballot box on Tuesday: the protection of workers’ rights, the future of Social Security, the expansion of healthcare coverage and so much more. It is so important that working people, union and non-union, make their way to the polls tomorrow, Nov. 6, to ensure their voices are heard loud and clear.

We cannot afford to have our rights rolled back any further, the benefits we’ve earned and paid into to be slashed or the healthcare coverage of working people with pre-existing conditions to be jeopardized. We cannot afford tax breaks for the top 1 percent while working- and middle-class taxpayers pick up the slack. We cannot afford to have anti-worker politicians representing corporations and billionaires — not working people — in the halls of government.

Visit myunionmyvote.org to find your polling place and make sure you’re prepared for Election Day tomorrow. Know how to get to the polls. Find out who your candidates are. Make your vote count. And remember to bring a friend, family member or co-worker to the polls with you!

Tomorrow’s the day!

Have you made your plan to vote yet?

Dear OPEIU member:

As ferocious attacks on workers’ rights, on our healthcare and livelihoods ramp up, we have one question: When will it end?

Tuesday, Nov. 6 marks one of the most consequential midterm elections in modern history. Candidates who support the interests and values of working people are on the ballot at all levels of government. Working people have the opportunity to turn the tides on Nov. 6 by casting their ballots and ushering into office candidates who understand, appreciate and respect the vital contributions working people across the nation make each and every day.

Now is the time to start planning for Election Day. Do you know where to vote? How to get there? Who you’re voting for? The AFL-CIO has created a website for union members,myunionmyvote.org, to help you craft your plan to get to the polls on Nov. 6.

If we don’t have a seat at the table, the saying goes, then we’re on the menu. That is why Tuesday’s election is so consequential. Working people need advocates in the halls of government at the local, state, and federal levels — now more than ever. Will you help them get there, so they can help us?

Visit myunionmyvote.org to make your plan to vote on Election Day, Nov. 6, 2018.
