URGENT: call Sen. Gillibrand and Sen. Schumer before tomorrow

Please pass this information to all your members. The Employee Free Choice Act is vital to working class Americans.

Your senators, Kirsten Gillibrand and Charles Schumer, are home this week. And all over New York, our opponents are twisting arms, running ads, making threats and doing everything they can to defeat the Employee Free Choice Act.

We're fighting back. American Rights at Work supporters donated over $25,000, making it possible for us to expand our "Greed" ad buy. And in response to Senator Specter's flip-flop on the Employee Free Choice Act, 300 workers delivered over 15,000 letters to his Pittsburgh office.*

But to win, we need to keep the pressure on critical senators like yours. Can you make sure Sens. Gillibrand and Schumer hear from YOU before Congress heads back to Washington this weekend?

Please call your senators today, then forward this to all your friends in New York!

Call Sen. Gillibrand at (202) 224-4451

Call Sen. Schumer (202) 224-6542

Tell the staff member answering the phone where you're calling from, and that you want to urge Sen. Gillibrand to work hard to pass the Employee Free Choice Act.

You can add:

The Employee Free Choice Act is a critical piece of our economic recovery.

CEOs and top executives are still getting huge bonuses, while the recession has hit middle-class families the hardest.

By making it easier for workers to form unions, the Employee Free Choice Act will level the playing field and help ensure that the economy works for everyone again.

If you have been a voter, donor, or volunteer for your senator, mention the impact his or her vote on the Employee Free Choice Act will have on your future support.

After you calls, click here to let us know you called and how it went. Don't forget this important step that helps us track how many supporters are reaching Congress.

This is a pivotal moment. We have an unprecedented opportunity to make real, lasting change for working families. But with shameless, ruthless, anti-union groups spending millions to keep the deck stacked against workers, we need every single voice to rise above the lies.

A phone call is the best way to make sure your voice is heard. Thank you!
