State workers picnic

State Workers Have a Picnic

Union members and political candidates flocked to the Dallas headquarters of the Texas State Employees Union on August 26 for an early labor Day barbeque.  Labor's effectiveness in the last elections and in the Texas legislative sessions demonstrated that progressive candidates need support from working people. The state workers advertised their picnic widely, including an interview on the "Workers Beat" radio program on KNON 89.3FM.

Everyone Should Like Labor

As the Dallas AFL-CIO Facebook page approaches 1,000 followers, people are realizing that they can get their friends to "like" the page and thus help spread labor's critical message.

Dallas AFL-CIO Facebook Page 

It is simple to go to the Facebook Page and then find the three dots that open up the opportunity to "invite friends" to "like" the page. Those who agree will then see all of labor's important posts on their own newsfeed.

Working people are the very core of the progressive movement. Helping the Dallas AFL-CIO organize and educate the public is critical for social change.
