On behalf of the Vallejo Waterfront Weekend Committee, I would like to invite anyone reading this to Vallejo’s largest two-day party of the year!

Working people are tired of hearing how tax giveaways for Wall Street billionaires and corporations will supposedly trickle down to the rest of us.

Siblings, our hearts go out to all of those impacted by the fires and now is the time for every union to step up and support their members in need. We are trying to do our part by starting a relief fund for active and retired members.

We hope to see you all at our Delegates meeting this Wednesday to get caught up on all the Labor happenings. This Months UWLG meeting cancelled due to schedule conflicts surrounding the relief efforts.

Folks,

NORTH BAY/ NAPA-SOLANO CLC MEMBERS DISASTER RELIEF FUND

 This disaster relief fund has been set up to assist affiliated active or retired union members who have lost their homes or been evacuated by the devastating fires that have affected both the North Bay and Napa Solano areas.

Led by AFGE National Secretary Treasurer Joseph P. Flynn, the summit featured speakers and panelists who spoke about the great work done at the VA, the crucial need to fill the 49,000 vacancies nationwide, and the true cost of funneling more funds into the private, for-profit sector.

Friends, the situation at the Fairgrounds has stabilized however it is expected that the animals will be there for an extended period of time and that more animals will arrive as well. Right now they need people with construction experience and tools to show up ASAP to assist in making the stables and support structures safe. There has been an incredible outpouring of support from the community but we are not out of the woods yet.

 

Folks,


We just wanted to reach out about the devastating California fires to help in any way we can to ensure that the workers and families who have lost work/pay are able to collect their unemployment benefits.  

Friends. In an effort to avoid duplication of efforts for the growing needs at the Solano County Fairgrounds they have provided an updated list. If you would like to donate or volunteer please do not just show up but call Animal Control at 707-784-1629 email at  [email protected]   to arraign to be put on the volunteer list or where to drop off supplies. We appreciate all your efforts to help out in this time of need. Stand by for further alerts.

 

 

Some 275 volunteers – pilots, mechanics, flight attendants and other workers – took off from Newark International Airport on October 4 on a union-sponsored relief mission to hurricane-smashed Puerto Rico, the AFL-CIO announced. Some 50 unionized registered nurses, members of National Nurses United, flew in from San Francisco the day before to join the mission.

The unionists headed for the island commonwealth, whose 3.4 million residents lack power, food, drinkable water and other resources, two weeks after Hurricane Maria hit.
