An Action In Support Of The Metro Parks Seasonals Struggle For Union Recognition
Thursday, August 9th
Call Metro Council - Demand They Stand For Worker Rights
A majority of the seasonal workers who work for Metro in the summer have expressed their interest in joining a union. So far Metro has not agreed to recognize the union. By calling your Metro Councilor, you can help these workers win their union. Each Metro councilor has their own district and phone line - please call them on Thursday August 9th.

The Laborers are asking that we make these calls to ask our Metro Councilors if they know about the seasonal worker organizing and that a majority of seasonal workers want to join Laborers and to ask our Metro Councilors to encourage Council President Tom Hughes to grant voluntary union recognition to the workers. Thank you for making the call!
