UnionWorking is providing a Presidential Candidate Town Hall for the first time in either union’s history. This is, in its own way, historic. Please take advantage of this tremendous opportunity and spread the word throughout your Social Media network.

**UnionWorking recognizes Queen Alljahye Searles and Abraham Justice as National SAG-AFTRA Presidential Candidates as well, but, regrettably, due to time constraints and financial limitations, we were only able to invite the three candidates who have gained national attention and support. Nevertheless, if the (2) candidates listed above would like to answer our (5) presidential candidate questions in writing (maximum 150 words per answer), we will happily post their answers on our website after the UW Town Hall the morning 8/16/19. Thank you for your understanding.

The entrance to Caldwell Hall Gymnasium is on Hesby St. on the North side of the Church. The doors will open at 6:45pm, and the Town Hall will start at 7:00 SHARP.
