What: Nikkita for Nine Labor Summit
When: Wednesday 10/13 from 7-9:30pm
How to join: Register here to receive the zoom link!
Join fellow 4121 members for an exciting opportunity to get involved with Nikkita Oliver’s campaign for City Council! On October 13th, we will be co-sponsoring a Community Listening Post on Labor Power (via zoom) with MLK Labor, UNITE HERE! Local 8, and the Nikkita for Nine campaign. This will be a space for 4121 members to join with others in our community for open discussion and strategizing around our priorities as workers. This summit will help serve as a foundation for policy development going forward. Discussion will include participatory policy-making focused on labor issues, the importance of organized labor in our region’s recovery from the pandemic, and how cross-union collaboration can strengthen the labor movement in the region.
Nikkita has a history of fighting alongside our union, including showing up to our bargaining sessions earlier this year. They have specific plans to implement a Green New Deal, deeply affordable housing, investing in community, de-criminalizing poverty to focus our justice system on worker and tenant rights and more! Nikkita is in constant communication with labor and our communities, working with everyday Seattlites to build a stronger city for all members. Getting Nikkita Oliver elected into office will not be easy (even though it should be!), and we could use everyone’s help to get the word out about how strong a candidate Nikkita is.
All UAW 4121 members are encouraged to join and add your voice to this important conversation. Register here to receive the zoom information!
If you would like to get involved to help make this event a success (e.g., help facilitate breakout rooms, take notes, support tech), please email email@example.com.
In addition, our Local is co-sponsoring several canvassing opportunities for Nikkita’s campaign. Members will join with others in the labor community knocking on doors to get out a strong vote in the upcoming election. For more information and to get involved, fill out this short form.
