What's a labor walk?
Labor walk's are a combination of knocking on doors to try and talk to people if they're home and/or just leaving campaign literature at about half the doors where no one is home. We've been using the term labor walk because these are done in concert with the LI Federation of Labor and other labor unions. Also we ONLY go to labor union households.
We usually go out in groups of 2 or 3 (you decide who) with a list of about 30-45 houses to hit. (of course people who are pumped can do more). Usually takes a couple hours. Volunteers are given lists, script, map, etc. Pretty much always done by about lunchtime.
At any of the walks in Suffolk there will be a NYSUT sign-in and several of NYSUT PAC coordinators to help any NYSUT volunteers.
A number of us have done these many times and have never had an issue. When you do get to talk to anyone most are appreciative of what you are doing. All research shows this is by far one of the most effective ways to campaign.
