Some 800 metro-area union leaders, members and their supporters turned out for the 44th Evening with Labor on March 3, 2023 (CLICK HERE for our album of photos). The annual event celebrates exceptional leaders in the labor movement.
“When I first received the call saying that I was going to be receiving an award, I honestly said ‘Oh, 689 is getting an award?’” said Raymond Jackson, ATU 689 President and Business Agent and the Trade Unionist of the Year awardee, who was joined on stage by leaders and members from his local, as well as John Costa, ATU International President, as he accepted the award on behalf of his union and then led the delegation in a chant of “Who moves this region? We move this region!”
