MPYCCLC: 5th ANNUAL LABOR DAY PICNIC IN SALEM
Salem’s Riverfront Park was the site of the 5th Annual Labor Day Picnic sponsored by Marion-Polk-Yamhill Counties Central Labor Council (MPYCCLC), AFL-CIO.
Salem, OR – On Monday September 1, delegates from 29 local unions in the Tri-County area gathered to host friends and family of affiliated unions and allied organizations. Two bounce houses and a joust were enjoyed by the kids and adults alike. Bar-B-Q chicken and pulled pork rounded an excellent picnic menu. Donations of non-perishable food and cash were donated to Marion-Polk Food Share. The event included the following guest speakers:
“Too many voters are being disenfranchised in this country, and much of it is intentional,” said Oregon AFL-CIO President Tom Chamberlain. “In too many states we have seen calculated efforts to lower voter registration, the deliberate spreading of misinformation, improper purging of voter rolls and more. What’s worse is that the Supreme Court failed to stand up for voting rights just months ago.”
