Labor wins at Night at the Nats
Never mind that the Nats blew an 8-4 lead on Saturday; it was a perfect night for baseball and solidarity. "Our home team lost, but labor won," said Community Services Agency Executive Director Sonte DuCote. Over 5,000 union members watched the Nats take on the Atlanta Braves at the annual Labor Night at the Nats. "What a great show of solidarity!" said DuCote. During pre-game, thanks went out to all of the participating international and local unions, whose support helps fund the Community Services Agency’s work aiding union members and workers. Amalgamated Transit Union Local 689 President Raymond Jackson and Iron Workers Local 5 President and Business Agent Ray Cleland were honored with the Washington National's Spirit Award for demonstrating outstanding support for CSA. The Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation-sponsored Little League team got to stand with the Nats during the National Anthem. "It was a fun night that continued the tradition of bringing union families together,” said Metro Washington Council Vice Presiden Herb Harris. “I look forward to next year.”
