Elections Matter Website

Every day, educators and other public employees, and the services they provide our communities, are being attacked. From challenging collective bargaining rights, to undermining the quality of public education and higher education, to decimating pensions and trying to put healthcare coverage further out of reach, working men and women across the country are under ELections Matter imageassault. And if this has taught us one thing, it's that Elections Matter.


The charge against our rights is being led by people who were elected to represent us. Elected officials have a direct effect on your job, your rights, and your family's and community's well-being. But recently, we have seen in too many places that once these anti-worker crusaders get into office, their power to strip away our rights is alarming.


These attacks are sustained, coordinated nationwide, and dedicated to weaken not just our rights but our ability to stop the very people who are doing this to public services.


That's why it is critical for all union members get involved in state and federal elections. It is the only way to ensure we elect people who will stand up for our rights, not strip them away. Go to the AFT's new Elections Matter website to see where these attacks are occurring and find out what you can do to help stop them. We will continue every day to push back against these assaults, but ultimately, the surest recourse is the ballot box.


It is up to us to make the change.  Go to the AFT Elections Matter Website and get involved today.
