Richard Trumka Days of Action: Join an Event Near You!

In memory of our late National AFL-CIO President, we’ve kicked off our Richard L. Trumka Days of Action Community Services campaign!

So far, the Allegheny-Fayette Central Labor Council held a litter clean-up Monday morning on the Northside of Pittsburgh.

The Harrisburg Regional Central Labor Council held a Labor Day of Action hosting four opportunities for volunteers: writing thank you cards for veterans; wrapping diapers at Mission Central; Helping with food distribution at the Midwest Food Bank, and cleaning up the CLC.  

The Montgomery Central Labor Council held a food drive for the Upper Marion Area Community Cupboard. 

The Northern Tier Central Labor Council is holding a socks drive for ALICE (Asset-Limited, Income-Constrained, Employed) families from now through November 13th. 

And, the Reading-Berks Central Labor Council raised $700 from their Hunger fundraiser. The Erie-Crawford Central Labor Council organized a community food distribution with volunteer union members.

Thank you to the outstanding union members who joined in to serve in solidarity.
