The Labor Movement, the people who brought us the weekend and a host of other things, deserve love and recognition. Friends of labor should help them celebrate the holidays.
The first event is the annual Central Labor Council Holiday Party spaghetti dinner on Monday evening Dec. 10.
This year it will be at the Senior Center on NW 34th St. just south of 441 and across from the Walmart SuperCenter. It begins at 6:30, with a donation requested of canned foods for charity, and will host and honor union activists and members from Transit Workers and Electricians, grad students and UF faculty, and supporters from the north Central Florida area active unions.
The second event is the Alachua County Labor Coalition Holiday Party on Tuesday, Dec. 18.
It starts at 6 pm and will be held at Forage Hall in Working Food, 219 NW 10th Ave. All are welcome. Bring a potluck dish if you can. ACLC works on Living Wage, Renter’s Rights, and Medicare for All, and helps out with other struggles going on in the community. There is a lively youthful feel to the ACLC as a new generation of labor activists have come on board.
