On Saturday, hundreds of International Union of Painters and Allied Trades volunteers joined over 1,000 other union members in New York to knock on doors for Hillary Clinton to support her in the state Democratic primary on April 19.
Led by IUPAT General President Kenneth Rigmaiden, and joined by Council Member Elizabeth Crowley, volunteers launched their efforts in Queens after a 9:00am rally. Volunteers from other unions hit other parts of New York with their get-out-the-votes efforts.
From day one, Hillary Clinton has pledged to work hard for every vote, take nothing for granted, and make this campaign about the people she will fight for everyday as president. Hillary for New York is building a grassroots campaign from the bottom up, making sure supporters of all walks of life are empowered to take the primary campaign into their own hands and organize other supporters.
As president, Clinton will strengthen unions and protect worker bargaining power, raise the minimum wage and strengthen overtime rules, and support working families through equal pay, paid family leave, fair schedules, and quality, affordable child care — that’s why more than 25 national unions have already endorsed Clinton in the Democratic primary.
