Share Article

Machinists Union will release results of a survey and launch a unique online effort on Sept. 1 to educate and engage voters in the upcoming election.

On Friday, September 1, 2006, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), one of the nation’s largest industrial trade unions, will release results of a survey to determine voter sentiment in five key states; Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Maryland and Wisconsin.

The Sept. 1 release of the survey will coincide with the launch of an online effort by the IAM and a community of web developers at http://www.RallyAround.Us, aimed at engaging voters and giving them an opportunity to publicly express their hopes and frustrations.

IAM leaders will also take part in a three-day, five state tour over the Labor Day weekend to raise awareness about the upcoming elections and the RallyAround.Us initiative.
