UFCW members employed at QFC, Safeway, Fred Meyer, Metropolitan Market and independent stores are working under an “extended” contract until they can win guarantees of fair pay, sick leave, safe working conditions and other basics. The outcome for grocery workers is bound to set a pace for other unions who are also negotiating contracts through fall and winter. Also featured will be firsthand reports by delegates just returning from the Washington State Labor Council’s Convention, held in Tacoma this year. Top issues at the convention include labor’s policy on immigration reform and whether or not to support Democratic Party candidates who cut jobs and slashed benefits for state workers in the last legislative session.The potluck, hosted by the Freedom Socialist Party, is designed to bolster awareness and assistance for the growing number of labor fightbacks.

LGBT SENIOR CARE PROVIDERS
COMMUNITY HAPPY HOUR
On August 26 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at Aljoya Thornton Place (450 NE 100th St.), join the NW LGBT Senior Care Providers Network Community Happy Hour. The aging process is difficult for everyone, but for our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) seniors the perception of availability for resource and understanding amongst Senior Care providers can be very frustrating. In many cases resulting in forcing our LGBT seniors to conceal who they are, often leading to a decrease in quality of life. It has become clear that there is a need for healthcare providers who wish to outreach and care for LGBT seniors to tighten their communication bridge, and work together to provide a better quality of care for the LGBT seniors of Washington state.
