    On Friday November 17th the Montvale Plaza in Stoneham was the venue for the Greater Boston Labor Council’s 14th annual honors dinner. Approximately 250 union leaders, activists and allies were in attendance as the council recognized the contributions of three outstanding leaders; Stephanie Muccini Burke, the Mayor of Medford, Congressman Mike Capuano and Jeff Sullivan, the Business Manager of Painters District Council 35.

    The evening of solidarity also had an important fundraising component for the council. Over $25,000 was raised from the contributions of 45 affiliates and allies through purchases of ads in a program book designed for the event.

    Another highlight of the event was the surprise visit of Jim Williams the past president of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades. President Williams worked closely with Jeff Sullivan during his tenure in office and his remarks praising Brother Sullivan and the DC 35 team were a great reflection on Brother Sullivan’s leadership.

    Dallas Labor Promotes Unity

    The Dallas AFL-CIO consistently calls for unity within our progressive movement during elections and all year around.

    Keith Ellison speaks for the DNC

    Keith Ellison, Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee, brought a similar message to a meeting in the House of Labor on the morning of December 15. Ellison has strong credentials for unity. He is Vice-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and a member of the venerable Farmer-Labor Party in his home state of Minnesota.

    The Ellison unity tour was featured in several North Texas meetings. The 9AM meeting at 1408 N Washington consisted largely of new activists or activists in new organizations that have sprung up since the fractious 2016 Democratic Party primary. Some organizatons were referred to as “popups.” AFL-CIO labor leader Mark York was invited to a similar “Finding Common Ground” meeting with Ellison at 5PM the same day.

    During the discussion period, activists made it clear that they were not completely happy with the Democratic Party primary race in 2016 and, especially, with the role of the Democratic National Committee. Ellison' made the purpose of his national tour clear: “You need a party you can trust, and this is why I want to talk to you today, because I want you to trust the Democratic Party.” He listed some of the reforms that are in effect or underway in the way that primaries are handled.

    Ellison, a Bernie Sanders supporter, did not dodge criticisms. He mentioned that the Southern Democratic Party had been the party of racism before the "Dixiecrats" switched and became Republicans. In modern times, he said, the Democratic Party has become the "big tent" political party of all ordinary Americans and their issues.

    Ellison said that the Democratic Party has changed its focus from simply winning elections to winning year round on the issues. He said that Texans could change our political makeup with an increase in Democratic voter turnout as small as three percent!

    Labor-Led Coalition Is Screening for 2018

    The progressive Dallas County coalition, led by the AFL-CIO, is well into the process of screening and recommending the best possible candidates for 2018. Political Director Lorraine Montemayor has a big stack of written endorsement applications from Democratic and Republican candidates representing every race that will be on the county ballot.
