Ron Oliver, AFL-CIO Community Services liaison in Erie, Pa., tells us last night the local labor movement there worked with community allies to create a safe, fun Halloween party for inner-city children. Some 50 to 60 little goblins and superheroes gathered at a local church and had a great time munching chips and cupcakes. Mmmmmmmmm.
Union volunteers in Erie, Pa., pulled weeds, mulched, raked and more on the main campus of the Barber National Institute on April 21, an annual Day of Caring. The institute provides education, training, rehabilitation and residential and health care services for persons with disabilities. The grounds clean-up project there was organized by the Erie-Crawford Central Labor CouncilCommunity Services Committee.
AFL-CIO Community Services Director Will Fischer sends us this report.
We are excited to introduce our new AFL-CIO Community Service Liaison for the Erie-Crawford Central Labor Council in Pennsylvania, Ron Oliver. A Steelworker for more than 20 years, Oliver has long been involved with United Steelworkers (USW) Local 3199, USW District 10, the central labor council and community services.
