The "UE Campaign for Justice 2000" in North Carolina helped secure the largest wage increase in 15 years for public employees in the state. Members of UE Local 150, North Carolina Public Service Workers Union recruited thousands of workers to sign "Living Wage Ballots," organized five workplace forums, distributed literature, lobbied legislators directly during the first-ever UE Lobby Day in North Carolina on June 14, called legislators during the final weeks, and strengthened the union by recruiting hundreds of new members.
