Meet us at the Labor & Friends Event Friday, June 2

Labor & Friends events are fun gatherings of labor union members, community and
faith-based supporters of organized labor as well as candidates seeking public office and incumbent elected officials.

‘Labor & Friends” is a political fundraiser for the Central Oklahoma Labor Federation, AFL-CIO (CLF). This year's event is Friday evening, June 2nd, at The Centre, 4325 N.W. 50th Oklahoma City. Frosty Troy, Editor, of the Observer, will deliver the keynote address. Frost Troy is one of my favorite Oklahoma speakers. I can still reminder the first time I heard him speak, he was so funny he took my breath away. When you come to the event this Friday you are really in for a treat.

The Keith Leftwich Volunteer of the Year Award will be presented at the event. This award is given to the volunteer who has made a difference in the labor movement. Tim O’Connor, member, USWA 998L/Dayton Tire, is President of the Central Oklahoma Labor Federation. The CLF consists of 59+ affiliated local unions across eight central Oklahoma counties. Its main function during political election season is grass-roots member-to-member volunteer mobilizations for labor endorsed candidates with races within the council’s jurisdiction.

I look forward to seeing you that the event this weekend.
