The rail labor unions at Amtrak are holding a rally today (See Calendar for details) to urge Congress to provide funding to save jobs and protect rail service. "Amtrak is a national rail service that supports good union jobs and a strong local economy,” says Herbert Harris, Jr, State Chairman, Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers & Trainmen / IBT. “Congress should provide the additional funding to keep Amtrak viable and serving our country."
With just over a month to Election Day, local union members can find out how they can help elect local labor candidates at today’s Virtual Phone Bank training session. “This is basic grassroots labor activism and as we navigate through this pandemic, every call you make could well be the difference on November 3,” says MWC Political Director David Stephen.

With a record number of area families struggling with increased hardships this year due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Community Services Agency is launching its 2020 Holiday Basket Program. “The need has never been greater,” said CSA Executive Director Sonte DuCote. This program provides support to needy union and community families for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Local unions and community members can support the program by donating gift cards and grocery store cards from union grocers like Giant and Safeway to the Community Services Agency. Local unions and CSA partners may also adopt needy families for the Christmas holidays. For more information email [email protected].
