All of the pro labor candidates in the Tulsa area of Oklahoma lost in the Oklahoma midterm elections except Denise Brewer.

American consumers can make a difference for working men and women when they buy products made right here in the United States, UAW President Dennis Williams told CAP delegates Sunday night.

What have we learned from our first year under Republican control of all branches of government? Elections matter. The mid-term election is critically important. And when we vote, we must not be taken in by hollow promises. We must not be distracted or deterred from our course by the peculiar distractions of this government. We must insist on something better from Washington. We do not want more politicians who forget about working families after Election Day.

Who are you voting for? UAW has a list of labor friendly candidates in your area.

November 6th, 2018 is the day to make changes in Oklahoma.
