Organized Workers for Labor Solidarity August 8

July 30, 2006

Dear labor activists,

The next meeting of OWLS, Organized Workers for Labor Solidarity,
will be on Tuesday, August 8, 7pm, at 6726 Corson Ave. S., Seattle.
This is in Georgetown, at the home of Bernadette Logue, SEIU member
and activist. (Take the southbound I-5 Michigan St./Corson Ave. freeway
exit. Once you exit just stay on Corson Ave and continue to her house.
Her phone number is 355-9156 if you need further directions.

At our last OWLS meeting we worked on and adopted a resolution in defense
of immigrant rights. We want to take this resolution to the labor movement
for education, organizing, and adoption. At this meeting we will discuss
ways to do that.

We'll also talk about plans for Labor Day and labor struggles in the Puget
Sound area. Folks are welcome to bring news of their own activities and
issues taking place in their unions. We hope you can make the meeting!

And for those who may want a refresher, below is what OWLS is about:

OWLS is a multiracial group of labor activists who are dedicated to
strengthening solidarity across union lines, and to reviving the fighting
spirit of the labor movement.

We believe that democracy is essential to making our unions and labor
councils strong, proactive forces for workers' rights. We promote the
organizing of immigrant and unorganized workers, especially the lowest paid.
