The Bureau of Engraving and Printing Joint Labor Council met Tuesday to discuss working more closely with the Metro Washington labor council and Community Services Agency. “We recognize that we all have issues in common, and that there is strength in numbers,” said Council chairman Christopher Mahoney of IBEW 121. “It just makes sense to work more closely together and take part in the programs run by the MWC and CSA.” Community Services Agency Executive Director Kathleen McKirchy provided an overview of MWC/CSA activities including local legislative and political activities, the recent DC LaborFest, the MWC Directory of affiliates and allies, CSA’s Emergency Assistance Fund, Labor Night at the Nats, the fight against Fast Track and more. The council is made up of locals of the IBEW, Sheet Metal Workers, Int’l Association of Machinists, Nat’l Treasury Employees Union, Teamsters, Plate Printers, Graphic Communications, Carpenters, the FOP, and the Painters. Members include those in the DC area as well as ones who work at the Bureau’s Texas facilities.
