AFSCME Local 2910, the Library of Congress Professional Guild, is joining forces with the food service workers’ union, UNITE HERE Local 23, to gather contributions for workers in the Library’s cafeterias. With the cafeterias closed until further notice, thirty food service workers have been out of work since the beginning of the pandemic last March. Their health insurance benefits were terminated on July 31, and their extended unemployment benefits will run out in December. Contributions will go directly into a special fund set up by Local 23, which will distribute grocery store gift cards directly to food service staff. The Guild urges others in the labor movement to step up by contributing to the Community Services Agency.
