The NWPA ALF asked and has received permission to piggy -back on this event with a Labor 2018 "Kitchen Table Conversion".

Please come out to breakfast and become part of the discussion that helps to turn our country around and back on the right track this midterm election.

Please let us know if you plan on coming to breakfast so we can inform the Golden Corral.

Joseph Stiglitz, a professor at Columbia University, who was the Nobel laureate in economics in 2001, spoke at a talk on Monday with Damon Silvers, the director of policy and special counsel at the AFL-CIO, part of a day-long strategy session on “Bargaining for the Common Good in the World of Global Finance” held by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung office in New York, a non-profit political German foundation.

House Democratic candidates in town this week for training at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Washington got a visit from AFL-CIO President Richard L. Trumka for some tips on how they can win back working-class voters.

“I don’t have to tell you that you can’t count on the D next to your name to gain our support,” Trumka told Democratic leadership and a room full of candidates on Red to Blue, the DCCC’s program for its strongest candidates.

In the belly of the political beast in DC, grassroots organizers gathered at AFL-CIO headquarters to discuss collective action under Trump, beyond the beltway. Activists representing teachers, housekeepers, graduate students, and airline workers talked about union power in the wake of the Janus decision and keeping hope alive for the next generation of young labor leaders.

As of today we are exactly eight (8) weeks from the Labor Day Parade! the next weeks will fly by quickly as we are all busy. We still have a tremendous amount of work to do and because of the reduction in staff at the NWPA ALF , other projects,  busy schedules, and health issues with Rosann, she will assure you she is fine now but we are far behind and in need of help!
