Atlanta Carpenters Play Key Role in Election Season

A sincere thank you to the many members who volunteered to help the SECRC support union carpenter-friendly candidates in the recent elections. We scored important victories and suffered defeats in each state, but the important point is the amount of teamwork displayed by our 212 Journeymen, 300-Hitters, 3rd Year Apprentices, Sisters in the Brotherhood, rank and file members and staff volunteers.

The UBC identified Georgia as a targeted state and the SECRC delivered. For the general election, 102 volunteers stuffed envelopes, worked the phone banks, and canvassed more than 700 doors in Atlanta, Augusta & Savannah with the Georgia AFL-CIO. For the runoff election, 114 volunteers continued the envelope stuffing and phone banking, and then canvassed again in Atlanta, Augusta, Savannah, Rome, and Brunswick to more than 1200 union member doors.
