401 Members Talking Progressive Politics!

It’s an exciting time to be a 401 member!

Hot on the heels of the wildly successful “It’s Yours Members’ Conference” where hundreds of 401 activists met in Calgary to discuss community activism, political engagement, and how to bring about positive change for the nearly 32,000 members of this great union, teams of 401 members are hitting the doorsteps of their fellow 401’ers from north to south.

Teams from Edmonton and Calgary were in full force, talking progressive politics and how to keep the momentum going for another 4 years with another Rachel Notley NDP government.

“These amazing community organizers and activists are on members’ doorsteps talking about the importance of electing a labour friendly government on April 16”,  says Union Labour Relations Officer David Smith. “It’s an exciting time!”

All the teams report they are having a blast!

“We are having fun talking to members at their front doors”, says an energized Timothy.

“Talking one on one with members about things that matter in our lives is very powerful”, echos Matthew.
