MLK Labor Swears in New Executive Board
The new MLK Labor Executive Board was sworn in to their 3-year terms at our delegates meeting this past week. Our new board was elected at the October delegates meeting and includes representatives from our re-organized trade sections.
**Please note: There will be no delegates meeting in December. Our next Delegates meeting will be January 16. You can always check MLKLabor.org/events for a full list of upcoming events.
Thank You, Cariño Barragan
After 11 years of serving our community with Casa Latina, Campaign Organizer Cariño Barragan is moving on to a new job with AFT. Cariño has been a relentless fighter for immigrants and worker rights.
Over the past decade, she has helped grow Casa Latina and worked with the labor community to build the immigrant rights movement locally. We will miss Cariño’s leadership but wish her the best as she begins a new job with AFT-Washington.
Support Rhino Stage Employees
Over a year ago, riggers with Rhino Staging voted to join IATSE Local 15, but have yet to receive a first contract. These workers need our support.
