Rank-and-file. Wife is AFT # 400, her national prez is marching here on Labor Day.

At the Philly labor jamboree a few weeks back, maybe you caught the young woman organizer's speech about intimidation on the job by Human 'Resource' consultants, against union efforts to organize the casino workers up the river?

Hopefully, some Pitt Labor Day marchers will continue walking past the parade route's terminus a few hundred yards to support UNITE hotel workers' action picket of the Hilton Wyndham, by Point State Park. Our Transit Workers, CWA & IBEW telecom workers, Postal Workers, SEIU, Teachers, and Ironworkers, have already had high-profile mass actions all around town.

Happy Labor Day to all. Labor isn't afraid of how weak we are. We're afraid of how strong we are.
