Dear Local 802 members,
We’ve heard from many of you who want to support our endorsement of the Joe Biden/Kamala Harris presidential campaign as well as pressure the Republican-controlled Senate to extend unemployment benefits and pass the HEROES Act. We have two actions to share with you at this time:
1. The NYC Central Labor Council is producing phone banking actions for NYC union members to reach out to other union households both in NYC and in battleground states.
2. Local 802 is asking members to write messages on social media about what re-opening the entertainment industry means to you, using the hashtags below. This is to support a worldwide action sponsored by allies of the entertainment industry. Please use the following hashtags: #WeMakeEvents #RedAlertRESTART #ExtendPUA #Local802AFM @Local802AFM . Click here for more info.
Thank you for all that you’re doing in these challenging times. Together, we can make a difference.
Local 802 President Adam Krauthamer
