Please advise your members of this action so they can begin to make contributions (both fiscal and with volunteer work) to his campaign. A local can add their own endorsement if they wish but can not make a fiscal contribution as the AFT is the umbrella group for making such contributions under federal reporting requirements and limits.
P.S. from Mahler: Our local, 1931, already endorsed Obama at our October 4th, 2007 union meeting held at City College. I am sure the AFT national will endorse him at the convention in July.
