Tape Release Thursday, August 21st 2014
The Union is calling for an official Union Activity Day for Friday, August 29th. This year the Rochester Labor Council, at the request of the City of Rochester, has moved the Annual Labor Day Parade to Friday evening. To be clear, the official Union Activity Day is moving from Labor Day, September 1st to Friday, August 29th in order to get participation for the parade. Members should still take the time to enjoy Labor Day with their families.
Special notification on the parade details as we just received a change in location this evening.
Meeting time is 5:30pm
Location is Picken St. between East Ave. and Broad St. near the Inner Loop.
The Actual Parade starts at 6:30pm.
We’re working on a gathering place after the parade. Details to follow shortly.
I’m asking each and every member to support your Union by marching in the parade. We don’t ask for much of your time and this is a great way to get out in front of the community that we serve every day, especially since it’s a contract year.
For those who march along with their family members, we will provide discounted tickets to Seabreeze amusement park for $15/each. The park ticket is good through Monday, September 1st.
Any changes to the above will be communicated via the tape.
This is your President John Pusloskie thanking you for calling your Union Tape, the place where we fight for the respect your deserve.
