Steelworkers Rally and BBQ
On March 13, 2017, the United Steelworkers at the Lucky Friday Mine went on strike for better wages, benefits, and collective bargaining rights. Since then, 15 months have elapsed and the miners still have no contract. Consequently, the strike continues. Therefore, to support the ongoing labor movement, there will be a steelworkers rally and BBQ to raise visibility and support. Union members along with their families and supporters will rally at the Hecla Mining Office in Coeur d’Alene. They invite you to join them as they stand up for workers. Also, if you cannot attend, you can still show your support by adding your comments on the USW Local 5114’s facebook page.
The Rally takes place on Friday, July 20 from 11AM till 1PM. Following the rally, there will be a Bar-B-Que at Ramsey Park (3525 Ramsey Road) in Coeur d’Alene. For more information about the Rally or BBQ, call 208-744-1774.
