“Lydia Edwards really is for the people of Charlestown,” said Local 888 member and Boston Police Dept. staffer Marian Callahan. “She will fight for more affordable housing and better schools — she’s everything we need in a City Councillor.” Callahan attended a “meet and greet” with Lydia Edwards sponsored by Local 888 on August 3 at the End of the World Tavern in Charlestown.
With continued strong support from Local 888 members, Lydia Edwards will win her preliminary election on September 26! Please vote!
The tentative agreement was approved by the membership with 80% support.
Local 888 member Jonathan Dudley (above at left) organized a meeting last July in Gardner for Central Mass residents to share their experiences and learn more about how NAFTA has impacted their communities.
At the meeting, participants discussed how to make sure Pres. Trump replaces the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with a deal that is good for working people and communities in all three North American countries.
NAFTA was negotiated by the Bush administration, signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1994. Some estimate that there have been 9 million NAFTA-related job losses in the US.
There is no guarantee that the Trump administration will make changes to NAFTA that actually benefit working people or communities, instead of just extending the many ways it benefits multinational corporations.
