Library Guild helps build Union City
AFSCME Local 2910 Shop Steward DavidFernández-Barrial generated dozens of Union City sign-ups in recent weeks after pitching it at the local’s holiday party and then following up with an email to Local 2910’s membership, which works at the Library of Congress. “We, as federal workers, need to show solidarity for our union sisters and brothers in the region, to shake off the post-election depression, fear and apprehension, and to actively tap into the network of action that our labor movement provides,” said Fernández-Barrial. Saying that Union City “is an exceptional publication chock full of local news, history, cultural events, trivia and helpful tips for the people who do the work of the nation,” Fernández-Barrial urged members to sign up for it here. “It costs nothing and is an excellent way to tap into the positive network of labor activism in our community, so that we can ensure that the values of inclusion, of respect, of dignity are preserved for everyone, as are the rights that we enjoy as federal workers in the Nation’s Capital.” Help us reach our goal of 50,000 readers – we’re currently at just over 33,000 -- by circulating Union City to your colleagues and fellow members. If you’d like us to make a brief presentation to your local, just email [email protected]
