Over 300 Attend AFL-CIO Labor Day Breakfast In Manchester

Sep 3, 2012

The AFL-CIO of New Hampshire held its annual Labor Day breakfast at St. George Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Manchester this morning.  More than three hundred working men and women gathered to hear from Governor Lynch, Employment Security commissioner George Copadis, and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, and others. 

The event’s featured guest and keynote speaker was AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler, who says she came to New Hampshire not just to recognize New Hampshire’s workers, but to encourage them to get involved in the upcoming presidential and local elections.

We have working family heroes running for all different offices here in New Hampshire, we’ve got right to work legislation that we’re concerned about so we wan tto make sure that working people get out to vote and that that message is loud and clear.

The most visible guests were those running for office – including Gubernatorial candidates Jackie Cilley and Maggie Hassan, and candidate for Congress, Annie Kuster – whose campaign yard signs covered the church lawn.
