New England resists national red tide
Posted by on

A message from Mark Erlich, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the New England Regional Council of Carpenters:

Yesterday's election results indicated, once again, that voters in New England are independent thinkers and do not necessarily follow national trends. While Carpenter-endorsed candidates did not win every race in every state, they were overwhelmingly successful. Our efforts were critical in holding back the national Republican anti-union tide. Once again, the members of the New England Regional Council of Carpenters demonstrated their readiness to work hard on behalf of those politicians who have continued to defend workers rights in the most difficult economic and political environment of our lifetimes. Our members made signs, phone banked, attended rallies, knocked on doors and did all the crucial things that make up the ingredients of a winning campaign. I am as proud of our organization -- its members and its staff -- as I've ever been. Thank you all for your hard work. It paid off.
