    How do we talk to members and coworkers who think differently than us about politics, racial and gender justice, union membership, or other issues? Would you like to be a better leader in your workplace and a voice for change.
    On Friday, January 28th, labor activists from throughout the state gathered to discuss the 2022 Legislative Agenda and advocate for much needed policies for working people.  Throughout the state, members of the labor movement met with their representatives and affiliates of the Thurston-Lewis-Mason Central Labor Council met with representatives from the 20th and 10th districts.
    When the TransAlta Coal mine closed and laid off 600 workers in 2006, Lewis County lost its biggest employer. In 2011, the TransAlta Coal plant eliminated another 300 jobs and announced its intention to close by 2025.  To help with the community’s transition away from coal, TransAlta, environmental groups and the State of Washington agreed to create a 55$ million coal transition funds.
    Even if our Seattle Seahawks aren’t playing in the big game, you can support working-people by buying union.  The AFL-CIO provides us with a list of drinks and snacks. It is pretty extensive and you’ll surely see a few products that you really like. Next time you see one of these products at the Supermarket: buy it and know that it is a quality union-made product.
    On Monday, Port of Chehalis staff were among the crowd present for the 110th-anniversary remembrance ceremony honoring the memory of "The Girls" at Greenwood Cemetery in Chehalis.
    Before the November election the Thurston-Lewis-Mason Central Labor Council endorsed 11 political candidates in their respective races. Each of our endorsed candidates made it through the primary election and was a candidate during the general election in November. In the general election in November 11 out of 13 candidates were successful in their election or re-election campaigns.
    The AFL-CIO, the state labor councils and our own Thurston-Lewis-Mason Central Labor Council are working to assure that everyone possible hears about what the PRO ACT would do for working people in America. Our Labor Council has financially supported the marketing of this bill in the States of Washington and Alaska because we really believe in it. You might ask yourself, what is the Pro Act.
