 As I stated in my newsletter in the last issue o the Bulletin, orga-nized labor has been under siege or too long. At this juncture, wemust increase our involvement in the political process or lose theability to protect our members nationwide. In order to overcomesome o the challenges we ace, we must maintain and increase our involvement in the political process.
 We cannot aord to allow Wisconsin’s Governor Scott Walker, or Ohio’sGovernor John Kasich, or Florida’s Governor Rick Scott and too many othersto continue blaming workers or state nancial problems that are the producto scal irresponsibility on the part o others.Our voice must be heard on the local level as well as the national level.Make no mistake, we are in the ght o our lives. As we head into the 2012election cycle, we have the opportunity to act and not just stand by as ourrights are stripped away.That is why, with the approval o the General Executive Board, the Interna-tional has engaged the services o Solidarity Strategies, a Washington-based rmthat is providing assistance to the IATSE’s Political Action Committee and politi-cal undraising eorts that will help us attain a greater voice in politics. Like itor not, providing nancial support to legislators that stand with us undoubtedly enhances our voice. In short, we must become a bigger player in the game.To this end, Solidarity Strategies ormulated the Stand Up, Fight Backcampaign or the IATSE-PAC, and I am urging every member o this great Alliance who resides in the United States, to get involved in this campaignby making a contribution to the PAC. As an expression o appreciation or amonthly contribution o ten dollars or more, members are eligible to partici-pate in our contest to win a trip to Hawaii (read more about the contest onpage 82 in this Bulletin). While the trip to Hawaii is a way or the IATSE-PACto express its thanks or contributions, the goal here is not just to go to Ha- waii. The real prize is promoting political involvement and growing our PACto protect what we at IATSE have ought so hard or over one hundred years. We cannot sit back and let others ght our battles. We must join with ourbrothers and sisters in organized labor and beyond to ght or our jobs, ourcommunity, our uture, and the uture o our amilies. We cannot just play deense. We can’t just talk the talk. We must realizethat the extreme anti-worker agenda hurts us all. History will judge us on the way we act at this crucial juncture.I urge you in the strongest terms to join the PAC and contribute today. Acontribution orm is printed on page 84 o this Bulletin, and you can get moreinormation about the IATSE-PAC by visiting our web site at: http://www.iatse-intl.org/pac/pac.html. You may also send in any questions or comments you have to: iatsepac@iatse-intl.org Join today and make our team stronger and more vital to the outcome o our utures!
The Power of the T-Shirt
 Another Labor Day has come and gone. For many in the popula-tion it was marked by an extra day o rest and maybe a backyard bar- beque. The annual newspaper articles made an appearance and each contained the obligatory discussion about why the long weekend at the beginning o September is not merely a marker or the end o summer, but rather recognition o the labor movement.
For those o us that are a part o the labor movement, this Labor Day elt dierent than ones o years past. The events o the past ew monthshave reminded us that there are some that see labor as an obstacle to theiragenda. There are some that eel the infuence o labor in society should bediminished and there are some that are putting a tremendous amount o e-ort into accomplishing that goal.Many o you have ound yoursel participating in rallies and other eventsthat are intended to demonstrate the solidarity o labor and to let those who would oppose us know that we will not sit idly by. At these events you haveound yoursel joined by other IATSE members as well as members o otherunions and organizations that share your views. At each o these rallies the emblems o dierent unions are everywhere. You have no doubt worn a hat or shirt at such a rally that bore the IATSEemblem. You have become amiliar with many o the other unions insignias while at the same time others have become more amiliar with ours. Withouthaving to ask, those in attendance immediately recognize what union eachparticipant belongs to and recognize the sense o pride that they have ortheir union. Many o you have no doubt worn similar items during your lei-sure time and had someone recognize you as a proud union member. While many o our local unions have made various apparel items avail-able to their membership or many years, the International has never madethis type o merchandise readily available. That has now changed.During the mid-summer General Executive Board meeting in Boston,MA, we launched the IATSE Online Store and put a link to the store on theInternational’s Web site (www.iatse-intl.org). You can now order a variety o union-made products and apparel items, all o which bear the IATSEemblem. The wide variety o items will allow or use in both your personaland proessional lives. Over time, we expect that additional items will beadded and colors and styles will be changed. Also i you have a suggestion we welcome your input. An assortment o the items or purchase at the IATSE Online Store canbe ound on page 30 in this issue o the
Ofcial Bulletin 
and the completeselection can be accessed through the International’s Web site. We encour-age you to take a look.
