The Green Mountain Labor Council (GMLC) will pay union members to canvass and phone bank for labor supported political candidates. If members can take the time to work to support labor supported candidates by canvassing and calling our own union members the GMLC would pay you $20/hour for canvassing and $15 an hour for phone banking. We would mentor you, partner you up, and supply you with lists of union members to connect with. To volunteer contact Traven at 802-522-3484 or email
