AFL-CIO Labor Day BBQ Dinner
On September 1, 2022 the Colorado AFL-CIO held its first annual Labor Day Labor Champion Dinner where four elected officials were honored as labor champions: Adams County Commissioner Emma Pinter, State Representative Tom Sullivan, State Senator Jesse Danielson, and House Majority Leader Daneya Esgar, who will receive our Mother Jones Hell of a Fighter lifetime achievement award. Over 200 people were attendance, including 130 members and leaders from the Colorado labor movement and 50 Colorado AFL-CIO endorsed candidates and elected officials.

Local 47 has a new Communicator
Maurice Jewell will assume the duties of Communicator effective March 1, 2022 he has successfully attended the basic web class at Winpisinger Training Center in Maryland and has been practicing the duties of Communicator over the last few months. I am pleased to make this announcement and to have been the acting Communicator during this transitioning period.
The Communicator position is a demanding one that comes with a great deal of responsibility to our members, such as, keeping the doors of communication open between members, our officers and the Grand Lodge, as well as, making available important information and useful resources through our website.
Maurice has demonstrated great qualities and enthusiasm necessary to fulfill this position and I believe he will continue to be a valuable asset to Local 47 and will server our members well.
