Urgent Action Alert: Protest Secretary of Labor Elaine Chow!

[This action alert comes to us courtesy of the Pierce County Central Labor Council, to which I am a delegate for the NALC (National Association of Letter Carriers).]

On Thursday, August 24, 2006, at 6 p.m. you will have a great opportunity to voice your frustrations with the Bush Administration's continuing assault on the rights of workers who want to join a union to collectively bargain for wages, benefits, and safe working conditions without suffering from intimidation, harassment, and coercion from their employers.

Secretary of Labor Elaine Chow will be in the South Hill area as a guest speaker at a "stealth" fundraiser for Mike McGavick, who is running against Senator Maria Cantwell. This event is being held in a private home located on a bluff overlooking the Orting Valley. We are urging all dedicated trade unionists to join with the 25th District Democrats in a protest along the street approaching the gated community. Bring your union banners and protest signs and wear your union colors with pride.

We are gathering at 5:30 p.m. at the Key Bank parking lot on 152nd and Meridian (the northeast corner of the intersection of Meridian and 152nd Street). Because it will be difficult to get vehicles close to the event, we will shuttle/car pool to the site.

Contact CHARLEY STOKES, at (253) 848-8431 or swstokes@earthlink.net or JERRY BECKENDORF, at (253) 229-7903 or jerryb62@comcast.net for additional information.
