At the link below you will find a registration form and
letter of explanation for the upcoming Faith Labor Breakfast sponsored by Jobs
The event is scheduled for
March 12th at 7:30 am at the Highland
Christian Center just down the road from the Portland office (78th and
NE Glisan St).
Please forward this info to any of your local
leadership you feel may be interested, and also consider coming
yourselves. Anyone who plans to attend needs to fill out the
registration and send in the $7 fee ASAP.
The directions for submitting the form are on the form.
Here are just a few reasons to attend this
1) Many of you may remember the outstanding support
the faith community has recently shown our union during Local 1995's strike. In
its six year history, this breakfast has aimed to lay the groundwork for such
acts of solidarity between the faith and labor communities.
2) Building stronger ties to the local people of
faith can only help improve our union's standing in the community and ability to
mobilize the community around issues important to our membership.
3) Finally part of the event will be geared toward
commemorating the forty year anniversary of the Memphis sanitation worker's
strike, which is an important moment in our union's history.
If you have any questions, please
