Dallas Labor in the Fight

Our Day Is Coming

Tickets are on sale for the Dallas AFL-CIO annual Labor Day breakfast. Tables are going fast at $350 for 10 seats. The breakfast is the premier Labor Day event and the kickoff for labor's role in the critical coming elections.

Labor Day Leaflet

On the Sunday before Labor Day, all worship services are encouraged to include working people's messages. Our Speakers Bureau has outstanding spokespersons.

Following our Dallas event, the Tarrant County AFL-CIO presents their picnic at UAW 218, 98 W Hurst Blvd in Hurst. The Dallas Democrats have another picnic starting at noon at 4930 Military Parkway in Dallas.

Stand with Undocumented Workers

Labor joins with other progressive organizations at 6:30PM on August 14 for a "Know Your Rights" forum at Hebron Lake Library, 4220 N Josey Ln in Carrollton. The Texas Legislature is attacking the families of our working brothers and sisters in labor with their "Sanctuary Cities" law. Issues of local control are also at stake.
