2) Guild President Howard Gensler and Guild Executive Director Bill Ross will be on the radio today from noon-1 p.m. on the WWDB 860 AM Radio show, “Today in PhillyLabor.” It’s a weekly talk radio show that presents a positive and dynamic look at the labor movement throughout Philadelphia & vicinity.
3) The Guild has free tickets to a screening for the movie, “Pride,” next Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 7:30 pmat International House, 37th and Chestnut streets. It’s a pro-union comedy-drama based on the British coal miner strike during the Margaret Thatcher era and the London LGBTQ group that offered surprising help to a small town of conservative Welsh miners. The movie is a real crowd pleaser and opens in theaters on Oct. 10. To see it first, email the Guild. The first 100 people get 2 tickets.
Thanks. In Solidarity,
Office Manager &
