Calling all unions to Raleigh
Our 2017 Labor Legislative Conference (LLC) will be held at the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel, 421 S. Salisbury St, Raleigh, NC on February 7-8, 2017. This conference combines training on our legislative agenda with a Labor Lobby Day to advocate for working people and is open to all union members, members of Working America, and AFL-CIO constituency groups.
What: 2017 Labor Legislative Conference (LLC)
When: Tuesday and Wednesday, February 7-8
Where: Sheraton Hotel, 421 S. Salisbury St, Raleigh, NC 27601
The 2016 election resulted in a Republican takeover of the White House and a continued Republican supermajority in the North Carolina General Assembly. Considering the results, the next LLC will be more important than ever. Being informed, organized, and engaged with our allies and our members is how we will overcome what’s coming.
Please make plans now to attend the LLC, where we will strategize and lobby lawmakers to advance a working people’s agenda. Our strength will come from our ability to mobilize our members around our issues and communicate a clear commitment to fight for all workers. That is why it is so important you and your members show up in big numbers to the LLC in February!
