Labor Lobby Day

Maine State House, Augusta

Brothers, sisters and friends —
When working people band together and make their voices heard, we have the power to make major improvements to the lives of working class people. Please join union members from across the state at this year’s annual Labor Lobby Day on Thursday, March 7, 7:45am - 3pm at the State House in Augusta.

This year, unions are working to pass a number of bills to improve working conditions and staffing, protect workers organizing, promote union jobs, make our workplaces safer and more!

At the Maine AFL-CIO’s Labor Lobby Day, union members will learn all you need to know about talking with your legislator about labor priorities. Workers will have the opportunity to connect to other union members and pro-labor elected officials and learn about how to get more involved. No experience is needed. We will give you all the training you need to be a citizen lobbyist!

Please consider bringing some new members from your local who have never attended. It can be a transformative experience getting involved in the legislative process.
