Labor Council Report 11/16/17


President’s Report:

   The Council received many Thank You Notes from the endorsed candidates who were grateful for the support of the Labor movement.

     Pat Costello and Bill Parotti spoke with Patrick Johnson to set up something to encourage minority participation in labor unions.  Some success has been achieved through changes with civil service for physicals for the Utica Fire Dept.  Outreach has been done to schools about careers in the trades in order to achieve higher rates of minority hires.


Field Mobilization:

     United Way:  Has hired a couple of new people for various positions one of which is Jordan Davies, as volunteers and events coordinator.  Enesa has done presentations at workplaces including Vick’s and National Grid about the valuable services of the UW.  The campaign is going well.    


     Christmas party set for Dec. 14, 2017, Delta Lake Inn cost of $30.00 per person, open bar, full buffet


     Coat Drive:  Lightly used winter coats and boots to be accepted through November 30th.  The donations are trickling in with a delivery of 24 new boys and girls hats and gloves expected from the Leatherstocking Pioneers Club, a group of retired and working Verizon workers and CWA 1126workers.   An anonymous family has donated a $500 gift card from Macy’s for children’s coats.    Macy’s will provide coupons for extra discounts.


Website: please, send your links and your photos for posting on the site. 


Suggestions accepted, too.


COPE:  Very pleased with this year’s interview process and success with the No Con Con vote!


Trumpka sent a Thank You note of pleasure for the success.


Worker’s Memorial:  Gompers Award Dinner had 180 participants and was a great success.  $6,000 profit made mainly through the ads and donations.

Women in the Workplace:  Norma Chrisman of MVCC will be a featured calendar girl for her work and organization skills at a meeting at NYSUT in late November.


New Business:  The Council approved the hiring of a new Auditor, the D’Arcangelo Agency. 5 turkeys approved for donation to the Utica Fire Dept. for their Thanksgiving give away.  The Utica Fire Dept. has new video equipment that can be available to the Labor Council for making media for use on social platforms.  A discussion was had on the importance of labor using social media.
