The Impact of Elections Webinar: Friday June 12th. 1-3PM
Must-see presentation if you care about your future!
June 08, 2020
When we elect a President, we empower an entire Administration with an agenda that will have consequences for the health, work, and security of ourselves and our Union for years to come. Presidential appointments to government agencies oversee unions, their members, and their employers. The Department of Labor, the National Labor Relations Board, and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation have directly impacted the lives of working people in the past and will continue to do so in the future. Inform yourself. Find out who is in charge, learn about the changes they’ve implemented since the 2016 election, and understand what their future agendas will bring. This Webinar is free and open to all IATSE Members, Family, & Friends.
