As Election Day draws near the Labor 2012 program is ramping up around the state as union members knock doors, make phone calls and leaflet worksites in support of Barack Obama, Tammy Baldwin and pro-worker candidates across the state.
Hazel Felch, one of thousands of labor volunteers, is spending time at her local union hall contacting fellow union members about the importance of the upcoming election.
Hazel is a retiree of USW local 2-1279. She worked at SCA Tissue in Neenah and is an ardent supporter of her local union as well as a tireless supporter of the USW District 2 political program. From feeding volunteers, to making recruitment calls, going door-to-door and handing out leaflets at plant gates, Hazel does it all.
Mike Pyne, USW District 2, detailed that Hazel is "truly a remarkable activist! I wish we had 50 Hazel Felches."
There are 17 locations across the state where volunteers can grab a walk packet and head out into the neighborhood, or pick up a phone and call-list to dail voters at home.
