Big Labor Could Be Coming to a Neighborhood Near You

The election is over but campaigning in the advocacy world is just geting under way.

The union will be in lawmakers' districts calling on them to "Protect Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security" and "End the Bush Tax Cuts for the Wealthiest 2 Percent," said the union's Amaya Tune in an email.
"[The] election was a huge victory for working family candidates but we've always stressed it's important to then hold people accountable to those who voted for working family values," Tune said.

The events include handing out fliers to commuters in Massachusetts and meeting with Sen. Jon Tester's staff in Montana, for example.
