A dozen union members showed up on a cloudy Sunday for the Lane County Labor Council and Oregon AFL-CIO's first joint canvass. With a lot of enthusiasm and good walking shoes, they visited working families in Springfield precincts, talking about John Kitzhaber and Pat Riggs-Henson with fellow union members. "It was important for us to be out there," said Tom Shackelford, ATU 757. "Union members need good information to counter all those TV attack ads - they need to know which candidates will really stand up for us." The next two canvasses are on Wednesday, October 13 and Saturday, October 16. Come help us get the word out to our members!
