Reception in Honor of Strikers on Sunday, April 5
Event hosted by Young Dems of NC
From Will Cubbison, Chair of the YDNC Labor Caucus:
Join us at a reception in honor of the striking IAMAW Workers in Moncure. They have been on strike for almost 8 months over deplorable working conditions.
This reception will be open to all who can come. We ask that if you are able to please send a check or bring one with you. If you are unable to give (I know times are tough) you are still welcome to join us to honor the heroic efforts these workers are making. We are working on pulling together some special guests, but I can promise that some members of the Union will be on hand to explain their struggle.
Make checks out to IAMAW Local Lodge W369. You can send them to the YDNC Labor Caucus at 220 Hillsborough St, Raleigh, NC 27603. We will be continuously fundraising for these workers until and past this event. We have already raised over $600 and are looking to be able to say that the Young Democrats were able to give significant aid to these workers. There is also talk of organizing a canned food drive, so please stay tuned and get involved.
What: Workers in Moncure have been on strike for almost 8 months. Help them out!
When: Sunday, April 5, 2009 from 4pm – 6:00pm
Where: Home of Valerie Johnson, 2905 Alderman Lane, Durham, NC (map it)
