NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Members of the AFL CIO Tennessee Workers Union gathered the morning of the third and final Presidential debate to talk about the issues they want discussed.
Among those issues, protecting pensions and investing in infrastructure, particularly when it comes to transportation.
"We need these president hopefuls to get in there and do something about bringing Nashville back up on its feet because were struggling, and we're all struggling together, and we need more funding," Stanley Cunningham who was representing the local chapter of the Amalgamated Transit Union said.
The union also wants more funding for public schools and at the debate, they're hoping to hear candidates talk about how they plan to keep the people in those schools safe.
"If we are really serious about having people back in schools, then politicians need to put their money where their mouth is. We need to bring down those class sizes. We need to fix our buildings. We need to make sure that everyone is protected who is inside. Until that time, nobody should be setting foot in a classroom, and to say otherwise, is to deliberately put in harms way our school employees, our students, and their families," said Amanda Kail, the president of the Metro Nashville Education Association.
