Working people of California are making sure this a recess some members of Congress won’t ever forget!
Members of Congress are visiting their home districts and states until tomorrow and with a critical vote to authorize Fast Track on trade bills looming, now is the time to make our bottom line clear: stand with working people to support good jobs! Vote NO on Fast Track!
Actions have taken place and are planned throughout California all week, particularly for members of Congress who have stated they will support Fast Track legislation (looking at you Congressman Bera) and others who have not yet committed to voting either ‘yes’ or ‘no’.
In Sacramento, workers delivered Q-tips to Congressman Bera’s district office yesterday with one clear message: Clean out your ears, listen to your constituents, and vote “NO” on Fast Track! And in Monterey, workers are dropping in to visit with Representative Sam Farr today to express just how important it is for our democracy, our jobs, and our environment to vote no on Fast Track. Last night, a coalition of unions and progressive organizations in Fresno staged a late night, candle lit “Neighborhood Watch” program in downtown Fresno aimed to raise awareness on Fast Track and to urge Congressman Jim Costa to stand with workers in his district.
And in San Diego, the Central Labor Council held sit-ins at the office of Congressman Scott Peters to urge him to stand up for good jobs.
