Pride Month Proclamation

On his first day in office our new President Jason Roberts named June as LGBTQ Pride Month for Local 691. It is the beginning of a long stretch of ensuring diversity and inclusion in our Union. It is the beginning of fulfilling  commitments he made while running for office in 2021.

Your vote is your voice

AFT President Randi Weingarten’s latest column outlines the urgency of using our voices—our votes—in this life-changing election, when we will make a choice “between President Donald Trump, who has trafficked in chaos, fear, lies and division, and former Vice President Joe Biden, who seeks to reverse Trump’s failures on COVID-19 and the economy, and to unite and uplift the American people.” Besides the four crises we face—a pandemic, an economic crisis, racism and a climate emergency—democracy itself is on the ballot, as Trump continues to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the election.
