Summer of Honor

This Friday night is Union Night at Camden Yards. Show your union pride at a rally with the stadium workers who are part of the United Workers Association (UWA).

Labor organizers have been working with this group for over a year and the UWA is now affiliated with AFSCME and needs our support on Friday night.

Peter Angelos, the Orioles owner, promised clean-up workers a living wage this season. Workers demand Angelos honor his commitment. I'm told that the head of the AFL/CIO in Baltimore is not supporting this rally-because he would rather be friends with the owner of the Orioles than with the workers who clean the stadium.

Come meet at Council 92 office at 6:00 pm, rally at 6:30, and then enjoy the game after.

Spread the word!

Where: Meet at 190 W. Ostend Street (AFSCME Council 92 office), Free parking!
When: 6:00 pm Union Night Friday June 17, 2005
What: Rally for Honor - United Workers Association

Show your spirit and solidarity with the UWA by purchasing a campaign t-shirt for $10!

p.s. It's also Student Night at Oriole Park! For all students with a valid ID -- Left Field Upper Reserve Tickets are $5. ONLY at the Box Office or by calling (888) 848-BIRD

Did you go to the game? I wanted to go but i was working at a meaningless job that i hate in order to pay the rent and afford to do the meaningul work that i am not compensated for.

Darned capitalism.
