Reach out to others that need a Union

This post is designed to help us reach beyond our parochial interests. The Wal Mart workers need Union protection. Local 400 of the United Food & Commercial Workers are involved in a nation-wide effort. Here is a link to a Facebook page to help you get involved with their efforts. If you scroll down the page you will find a previous link to a show involving a discussion of the Employee Free Choice Act and local Apprentice Programs. Local 602's efforts in apprentice training were included in the panel discussion. Ron did a pretty good job with very short notice.

There is a show this Sunday, June 7th, 6:30 PM that you can watch on cable if you live in or around Fairfax, Va. You can also watch it "live stream", via the Internet. The moderator would appreciate if you e-mail or call in comments or questions.
