Just some quick action updates for this week! We are just two weeks away from our first union election for the workers at JFK8, and we need all the help we can get to make phone calls to all of our coworkers in the building, informing them about the union and the election, countering Amazon management’s lies, and answering all worker questions and concerns.
If you or anyone else you know can help out on the phones, please get involved right away! You can even call workers from the comfort of your own home, using the NationBuilder FieldEdge app. Sign up to volunteer on our NationBuilder Action Portal, or email our ALU field director Mitch, for more information.
Upcoming dates for in-person phone-banking events:
• WEDNESDAY, March 16, 2022, 6:00pm-9:00pm, CPUSA HQ, 235 West 23rd Street, 7th Floor, 10011
• WEDNESDAY, March 23, 2022, 6:00pm-9:00pm, CPUSA HQ, 235 West 23rd Street, 7th Floor, 10011
We’re also hosting a fundraiser after our marathon phone banking event tomorrow at the Starr Bar in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Please come out to join in our celebration of worker democracy, and bring your friends and comrades!

Help Support Our Organizers In Need
If you believe in the justice of the ALU cause and the importance of mutual aid, perhaps you can contribute some funds to our worker organizers who have faced hardship and retaliation by Amazon management for their fearless organizing and still continue to struggle:
Any contributions at all are greatly appreciated! Thank you for your support and solidarity!
Until Next Week!
