The Cincinnati AFL-CIO Labor Council Annual Golf Tournament helps provide the Council with the resources it needs to strengthen the Labor movement and continue providing valuable resources and services to working families in the greater Cincinnati area. Now, as things begin to find their new normal after a year of social distancing and the inability to gather and celebrate, it is more important ten ever that we take the time to come together to celebrate who we are, what we have achieved, and what more we have to look forward to. So please, come out to play and celebrate. Your support is greatly appreciated!
On behalf of over one-hundred-plus union affiliates, our union members, and all working families, I thank you for your continued support. We look forward to seeing you Friday, August 6!
I encourage your participation in this year’s National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Stamp Out Hunger food drive, which will occur on Saturday, May 12. Last spring, NALC members and other union volunteers collected over 75 million pounds of food during their 25th anniversary Stamp Out Hunger food drive. Since the inception of this annual endeavor, NALC has collected over 1.6billion pounds of food to replenish community food shelves in thousands of communities throughout the country. This remarkable feat proves what we can accomplish together with commitment, determination and hard work.
While the total pounds of food collected is hard to visualize, the faces of thosewho are helped by this effort are all too familiar – children, seniors and workingfamilies struggling to make ends meet. Working in partnership with AFL-CIOstate and local bodies and the Labor Liaison Network, United Way Worldwide,our nation’s food security advocates and a host of other partners, the NALC getsfood into the cupboards of those in need.
All people need to do is place a bag of unopened, non-perishable food next totheir mailbox before their letter carrier delivers their mail on Saturday, May 12,and the carrier will do the rest. Once collected, the food is taken back to thepostal stations, sorted, and delivered by union volunteers to area food banks andpantries.
I am proud of our long-standing partnership with NALC in this important effort.Please publicize and promote the May 12 NALC Stamp Out Hunger food driveamong your members. With the support of unions and America’s workingfamilies, the NALC can collect more food and by doing so, help families in needof this critical assistance.
If you have any questions or would like to get more involved with the NALC Stamp Out Hunger Food drive, please contact Yael Foa, National Community Engagement United Way Program Coordinator at (215) 439-0676 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for supporting the NALC Stamp Out Hunger food drive.
More GDIT Workers Call For Justice! Wage theft at the 3rd largest federal contractor. We have been working with CWA on filing wage theft complaint on behalf of workers who are getting shared on wages by General Dynamics – Yes, that General Dynamics. These workers field ACA and Medicaid calls. Even though they work full time, some of them have to rely on those same programs to take care of their families – and it turns out their employer is stealing their wages. An assault on any of us is an assault on all of us!
Too many Ohioans are being ignored and left behind. That must change, and we need to work together to do it. Richard Cordray and Betty Sutton spent their careers in public service focusing on the kitchen table issues that keep families up at night. Each brings unparalleled experience working at the local, state and federal levels, taking on powerful special interests and institutions on behalf of Ohioans — and delivering results. Together, we will change the system so that it starts working for Ohioans and their families, rather than the powerful interests. And it starts by electing Richard Cordray as our next governor. Join our campaign today.
