California Says "No" To Prop. 32

In early September, phone banking was coordinated by the International’s West Coast Office for the “NO on Proposition 32” campaign in California, as well as the Presidential election. For nine weeks the International worked closely with the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor and IA Locals from Northern and Southern California regions assisted with the effort. It was noted that between 850 and 1,000 volunteers energetically planned meetings, visited worksites, provided voter registration forms to members, participated in precinct walks and other activities.

The IATSE made a difference in California in the successful defeat of Proposition 32 which would have stripped away labor’s ability to participate in the political process.

The Union continues to expand its profile on the political landscape and has been heavily involved in efforts throughout the US during this election season.In early September, phone banking was coordinated by the International’s West Coast Office for the “NO on Proposition 32” campaign in California, as well as the Presidential election.
