Region 8 Updates

Hi Folks: I have received a lot of inquiries about the February 24th Working People’s Day of Action and the Stand Strong For Labor Rally on February 26th,  consequently, I wanted to share this information from PEF’s main website about two separate opportunities available for us to demonstrate our commitment to our union and the great things we’ve gained through our struggles, like great benefits, fair pay, a pension and safer workplaces. 

If you are able to travel to NY City on Saturday February 24th to help show the supreme court, the president and all those who seek to diminish our ability to collectively bargain here is the information about that: (Make sure to scroll down if you are interested in the Stand Strong Rally, instead.)


PEF Members: Join the Working People’s Day of Action in NYC. 
Thousands of working people and our allies will be standing up for our freedoms and demanding an end to the system that’s rigged against us. Saturday, February 24th at 11:00 AM • 111 Worth St. – Foley Square – NYC.
