Pierce County Labor Council endorses marriage equality Courtesy of Pride At Work
Pierce County's labor community demonstrated its solidarity with the LGBT community Wednesday night when the Pierce County Central Labor Council voted to support Gov. Gregoire's bill to legalize full marriage equality.

Anita Latch, president of the new Pierce County Chapter of Pride at Work, made the motion at the Labor Council's monthly delegates meeting, stating the time-honored labor adage that 'An injury to one is an injury to all.'

The motion was quickly seconded, and after Latch called for all working people to be treated equally, there was no further discussion. The motion passed without any 'nay' votes.

Pride At Work is an LGBT labor organization affiliated with the AFL-CIO. It includes members of AFL-CIO, Change To Win, independent unions, and non-union allies.

Pierce County Pride At Work meets on the third Wednesday of every month at 6 p.m. at the IBEW 76 Hall (3049 S. 36th St.) in the back meeting room.
