MRLF seeks union members to organize locally with North and South Suburban Advisory Councils
Adapted from the Minneapolis Labor Review, January 25, 2013
MINNEAPOLIS — Do you want to help build better communities for working families by organizing in your own back-yard? Do you want to elect pro-working family candidates? Do you want to fight back against assaults on workers?
The Minneapolis Regional Labor Federation is asking affiliated unions to recommend union members to serve on its two suburban advisory councils.
The North Suburban Advisory Council includes union members who live or work in Anoka, Wright and Meeker Counties.
The South Suburban Advisory Council includes union members who live or work in southern Hennepin County, as well as Carver, Scott and McLeod Counties.
The North and South Suburban Advisory Councils of the Minneapolis Regional Labor Federation screen candidates for political office, build relationships with elected officials to promote pro-worker public policy and work to advance the goals of workers in local communities.
Meetings take place once per month. The North Suburban Advisory Council meets in Ramsey on the first Thursday of each month. The South Suburban Advisory Council meets in Bloomington on the first Monday of each month.
For more information about the suburban advisory councils, contact MRLF community and political organizer Graeme Allen by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 612-379-4206 ext. 103.
If you are interested in serving on one of the suburban labor advisory councils, ask your local union to contact the MRLF and recommend your appointment.
