We are pleased to announce that our special guest speaker for the next Delegate Assembly has been confirmed! We will be welcoming the Washington State Labor Council’s Government Affairs Director, Joe Kendo. Joe has been a Council Representative for Washington Federation of State Employees, AFSCME Council 28, as well as a Legislative and Policy Director with the Washington State Labor Council.
Anti-union lobbyists have been extremely active in the state of Washington, but labor allies have been enormously successful in defending workers’ rights, due in large part to the efforts of the Washington State Labor Council and Joe Kendo. As California labor communities prepare to face the same challenges our Washington State brothers and sisters have been fighting against for years, Local 21 is fortunate to have Joe guide us in a discussion of the specific tactics they’ve encountered and some of the strategies Washington state unions have employed that have been the most effective in repelling anti-union attacks.
Don’t forget to RSVP for the Delegate Assembly on October 28thby registering on the Eventbrite linked here. Delegates and Acting Delegates must be registered by October 20th in order to receive a voting badge.
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you in Oakland!
