As you may have heard, we’ve been forced to call off this year’s Jeff Washburn Labor Day Picnic at Kalama’s Heydu Park. That doesn’t mean we won’t be celebrating you - the working people of Southwest Washington and the unions who bring them together - on Labor Day!
We’re planning to show off Southwest Washington’s Union Pride on Monday, September 6th through the Council’s social media channels… and we need YOU to make that happen.
We were overjoyed to see this message from the Clark College Association For Higher Education in our inbox:
Clark College's faculty union (CCAHE), wants to thank the Southwest Washington Central Labor Council (SWWCLC) and its affiliates for providing ongoing support over the past year in our efforts to successfully stave off faculty layoffs and cuts to benefits.
While Covid restrictions made it difficult to organize...
On this Workers Memorial Day, The Southwest Washington Central Labor Council honors all 119 Washingtonians, and especially those in Clark, Skamania and West Klickitat Counties, who died on the job in 2020 - and we ask that you call your Senators today and urge them to pass the PRO Act so that working people can have a voice on the job about safety issues.
It takes more, not less, to educate and support our students during the pandemic. Our state and federal government recognized this by sending $35 million in COVID relief funds to Clark College. So why is Clark College insisting on making 5 percent cuts at this time?
