Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As another year has slipped past us, Labor Day is once again upon us and so is our annual Labor Day Breakfast.
The past year brought both success and disappointment. The year brought us Hurricane lke but also a sense of community and humanity, it brought us job loss but also the chance for State Representative to show a level of statesmanship that Craig Eiland and leadership we have not seen in years, the year showed change can occur with the election of President Barack Obama but reminded us that more change is needed with the actions of the Texas Senate. We have many challenges that lay ahead and must continue to try to elect friends of labor to office. Nothing demonstrated this more than the battle of Entergy vs. Summers. We won in the House by one vote but could not even get it to the floor in the Texas Senate. We face upcoming battles on Worker's Compensation in the state and passing The Employee Free Choice Act on a national level. There is much work ahead, by Labor Day we will know the results of the ongoing organizing drive by the United Steel workers at the Valero refinery in Texas City.
I want to first thank you for your past contributions to our Labor Day Breakfast and also ask you to once again contribute to helping make Labor Day a success by sponsoring our breakfast. Both Mayor Bill White and John Sharp will be in attendance and allowed to speak briefly. Breakfast will begin at 9:00 a.m. and will be served by Grand Prize Bar B Que of Texas City. The Central Labor Council has temporarily moved and the address to send your check is:
