Gunther and Cellini attend rally against "war on workers"

“Today on Flag Day we will exercise our patriotism and rally in support of workers and the middle class. We will get the truth out about Sullivan County workers who have made salary sacrifices by choosing the public sector. We will not permit the largest group of union members in the county to be attacked by unimaginative decision makers in their hope to cripple and destroy the trade union movement locally,” said Sandra Oxford, UFCW Local 888 Representative.


Founded in 2001, the Hudson Valley Area Labor Federation represents 113,000 union families across seven counties: Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Rockland, Sullivan and Ulster. Our goal, working with our partner Central Labor Councils (CLCs), is to lay the foundations for a more visible and bold labor movement that reflects the hopes and dreams of working families in the Hudson Valley.
