Let’s Go For A Walk This Weekend For New Hampshire Working Families


Brothers & Sisters,
 
 
The polls are getting too close for us to sit this weekend out. We need the help of every member that has two hours to spare before Election Day. In two hours, you can make a difference and help us in our final push to elect leaders that will fight for working families.
 
 
 
I know that we’ve asked a lot of our labor family its allies over the past year. But it has never been more critical for us to engage our fellow union members and make sure they have a plan to vote on Tuesday.

Statement from New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Glenn Brackett on Today’s Private Donald Trump Event in Manchester

 

PRESS RELEASE 

June 30, 2016 

Statement from New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Glenn Brackett on Today’s Private Donald Trump Event in Manchester

HOOKSETT—New Hampshire AFL-CIO President, Glenn Brackett, released the following statement on Donald Trump’s visit to Manchester scheduled for 3:00 PM at the old Sylvania Facility, located at 655 South Willow Street in Manchester.

“Donald Trump can’t pull the wool over the eyes of hard working Granite Staters as he tours the country touting policies that experts have said would lead to another recession and cost the U.S. millions of jobs,” said Brackett.  “His disregard for the success of our economy here at home is no surprise given his track record of outsourcing jobs, hiring foreign workers, and cheering for an economic crisis that cost 25,000 people in our state jobs. Nothing seems to have changed as he still continues to put his own pocketbook over the working men and women or our state. He even celebrated the Brexit outcome that wiped more than $100 billion in value out of Americans’ 401(k) accounts over the course of a day because he thought it could bring more profits to his luxury Scottish golf resort. At best, Trump is a hypocrite who promises to help working men and women while he outsources jobs to benefit his bottom line at the expense of American workers.” 

“I would ask all those interested in standing in solidarity with New Hampshire working families to join us at the old Sylvania facility on South Willow Street in Manchester at 12:30 PM today to let Donald Trump know that we won't be fooled by his lies.”

PRESS RELEASE: NH AFL-CIO PRESIDENT BRACKETT’S STATEMENT ON HILLARY CLINTON ENDORSEMENT

June 21, 2016 

NH AFL-CIO PRESIDENT BRACKETT'S STATEMENT

ON HILLARY CLINTON ENDORSEMENT

HOOKSETT—New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Glenn Brackett released the following statement on the organization’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton.

“The choice in this election is stark. Hillary Clinton has fought for American families and their ability to make ends meet throughout her career in public service. She knows that workers are the backbone of our country and her commitment to our nation’s working men and women is reflected in her record of fighting for higher wages, better workplace protections, and the elimination of the wage gap.”

“On the other hand, Donald Trump is a fraud who has actively worked to stiff his own employees in order to make himself richer. He gets up in front of crowds and makes them believe that he will fight for them. When in reality, we know that he has spent his life stepping on whoever he needed to promote and elevate himself–even when it meant lying and taking from working folks. I am proud that the AFL-CIO is supporting a candidate like Hillary Clinton who will work to build an economy that works for all of us.”

AFL-CIO Will Hold Off On Presidential Endorsement

Source: Dave Jamieson, Labor Reporter, Huffington Post (Click Here for link to article)

The AFL-CIO will not be handing out their endorsement in the 2016 Presidential Primary, at least not yet. This comes from an email that President Trumka sent to members that was obtained by various news outlets. In the email President Trumka stated:

“Following recent discussion at the AFL-CIO’s Executive Committee meeting and subsequent conversations with many of you, I have concluded that there is broad consensus for the AFL-CIO to remain neutral in the presidential primaries for the time being and refrain from endorsing any candidate at this moment.” 

Under the AFL-CIO’s procedure, if the Executive Council gives an endorsement recommendation, the endorsement must be ratified by leaders of the federation’s member unions. President Trumka also stated in the email that the Executive Council would “continue its ongoing discussion” about the 2016 campaign.
