Dear Local 706 Members,
We need your participation more than ever to support candidates who are PRO-UNION. We invite you to join us for the following two important October Election Events...
Day of Action for Christy Smith
When: Saturday, October 8, 2022; 9:00 am.
Where: 39047 10th Street East, Palmdale, CA. 93550
Details and Transportation Link: https://mobilize.us/s/DJkgKq
Bring your walking shoes and join your IATSE family as we work to get out the vote for Christy Smith for Congress. You will also have the opportunity to meet U.S. Senator Alex Padilla who will be speaking.
This election is critical for our members of the IATSE. The current Congressperson is not only anti Union, but he is anti IATSE. During our contract fight with the Producers last year a petition was circulated throughout the California delegation of Congress. Mike Garcia had a chance to add his name to the petition but chose to side with the Producers instead.
On women’s rights, he has said that he will support outlawing a woman’s right to choose at the Federal level, and he voted against the child tax credit for middle class working families like us.
We have the chance to elect a real friend of the IATSE, so let’s get out there and make it happen!
