After the rally, volunteers will participate in "Labor-to-Labor" neighborhood canvassing and phone banking to spread the message that union members must vote on Nov. 8, because the stakes for American working families have never been higher than they are in this election.
The USW represents 850,000 men and women employed in metals, mining, pulp and paper, rubber, chemicals, glass, auto supply and the energy-producing industries, along with a growing number of workers in public sector and service occupations.
