Local unions mail their members in Wisconsin

In Wisconsin, a state decided by less than 1 percent in the past two presidential elections, local union mail is heading to members in advance of the Oct. 5 start of early and absentee voting, reports Sue Ledbetter, the Labor 2008 state director. IAM Local 873, made up of workers at John Deere in Horicon, Wis., and UAW Local 469, whose members work at Master Lock, are just two of the many locals whose presidents are sending letters to their membership in support of Obama.

UAW Local 469 President Tony Rainey already has sent out one letter with more on the way. All UAW locals in Wisconsin will mail four letters to their members about why Obama is the right choice to turn around America.

Alex Hoekstra, president of IAM Local Lodge 873, also has mailed a letter to 1,600 members, active and retired, about Obama's pro-working families stance. The plan is to send out two or three more letters in the weeks to come.

Green does not have a lot of money as is and I am sure that this whole mess is costing him a ton.
