Union Pledges Arizona Turnout Push To Help Democrats

Unite Here Local 11 on Facebook

A union representing hotel, airport and food-service workers says it will make a major push in Arizona for Democrats in Arizona ahead of the November election.

Leaders of Los Angeles-based Unite Here Local 11 said Thursday they'll look to register 40,000 voters, knock on 650,000 doors and speak to 160,000 voters.

The union has a relatively small presence in Arizona representing about 2,000 workers.

But it's found success organizing in Latino communities and is looking to flex its muscles in a state likely to be instrumental in determining control of the presidency and the U.S. Senate.
