Labor Council Labor Day Picnic This Weekend

The San Diego-Imperial Counties Labor Council celebrates the American worker with its annual Labor Day weekend picnic this Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m.

This year’s picnic will be held at Cesar Chavez Park in Barrio Logan.

More than 3,500 tickets have been sold to the event, which also includes a ticket to that night’s Padres game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Festivities will include free food and drinks, kids games and music. Elected officials have been asked to help serve food, as a way to honor the regions’ workers.

For discounted $10 tickets to both the picnic and Padres game, call the Labor Council at (619)283-5411.

The San Diego-Imperial Counties Labor Council is a coalition of more than 100 local unions. The Labor Council represents 120,000 working families in the region. The Labor Council strives to ensure that all families in the region earn a fair wage, health care for their families and have the ability to retire in dignity.

I'm glad that once a year corrupt union bosses will mingle with the little people and sing the international with their Liberal/Commie shock troops. Hopefully they'll burn a flag or two just to get the party started.

Hey, hannitized, go camp out with your right wing buddies on red county... I don't know a union member who would ever burn a flag, idiot!

Jesus, will some please tell hannitized that Unions are as patriotic as any American. The believe that in a democratic society Workers should have a voice in both their jobs and in Government. Most of the reforms we enjoy today, better pay equity and workplace safety are thanks to Labor Unions. Why don't you look at the Republicans and their embrace of outsourcing to improve the bottom lines of Corporate America
