Support Taxi Drivers and Keep the Heat on the Port of Seattle
Teamsters 117 has made groundbreaking strides to organize the transportation-for-hire industry. The Port is attempting to undercut this effort by slashing wages to less than $5 an hour. We can’t let that happen. This week at the WSLC convention more than 450 delegates and guests were called to action in support of taxi drivers at the Port. Tell the Port to choose dignity over exploitation. Call 206-787-3034 and say, “Don’t exploit workers for profit!”

Yes on Homes - Canvass for Affordable Housing in Seattle
Are you ready to fight to make housing affordable in Seattle? Join the Union Summer Interns, The Washington Bus Fellows, OPEIU Local 8 and the Yes for Homes campaign in the final canvass of the Primary season. Mayor Ed Murray will be on hand to kick of the event before we head out to knock on doors and talk to voters about how our city can have affordable homes for all. After doorbelling, come back to the Labor Temple and enjoy a BBQ sponsored by the MLKCLC.
When: Saturday, July 30th, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Where: Seattle Labor Temple – Hall 8, 2800 1st Ave, Seattle
Facebook: Share the invite with your friends on Facebook

Union Summer Week Five
This week most of the Union Summer Interns have been working hard with Working Washington on the Secure Scheduling campaign. Two interns made their way across the mountains to the WSLC Convention and were able to witness first-hand the process by which organized labor establishes policy priorities for the following year. Interns participated in sign-making for the Black Lives Matter march and rally that followed education day with the Labor Education and Research Center. This weekend, if you’re out doorbelling for Labors endorsed 7th CD candidate, Pramila Jayapal, you’ll find the interns there too.

Take Action!
