Dear Employee Free Choice Act Now,

Tomorrow the Senate takes its first vote to confirm Hilda Solis as our Secretary of Labor. Your senators need to hear from you today in support of Rep. Solis.

Click the link below to take action and write to the Senate.

During our current economic crisis, it's important that we have a strong Secretary of Labor as the voice of working people. Hilda Solis will be responsible for unemployment benefits, enforcing the minimum wage, and managing job creation and training programs.

Hilda Solis is a champion of the middle class. She's fought for green jobs, the Employee Free Choice Act, fair pay for women, and children's health insurance. Raised by two union members, Solis is an experienced leader who has fought to restore balance to our economy and fairness for working families throughout her entire career.

President Obama nominated Hilda Solis for Secretary of Labor more than two months ago. It's time she was allowed to get to work.

Click the link below to send a note to your senators in support of Hilda Solis before tomorrow's vote.

In Solidarity,

Michael Whitney
