|SPCLC Weekly Newsletter June 10, 2018|
Hey folks, it’s getting hot out there. People are travelling and going on vacation. Other people are sweltering in manufacturing facilities, in trucks delivering goods and on construction sites. Whether you are having fun or working hard, make sure to drink lots of water and stay safe! Apologies for the delay on this week’s newsletter, I myself have been travelling for work, but am looking forward to seeing you all in the Queen City for our CLC meeting next week! Bring a friend and let’s kick the summer off cooking hot in the name of worker justice! In solidarity, Ashley Hawkins

NEWS YOU CAN USE:
Sometimes, even Fox News will tell the truth. Fox News Business recently reported on the favorability of labor unions with the American public.
The tide continues to turn in favor of organized labor… We have the numbers. We have the strength. The economy is on our side. Even the highest office in the land can not stop us now. Trump Is No Reagan When It Comes to Union-Busting
