John_Scearcy_-_Local_117.jpgI wanted to invite you to join together with other Local 117 members as we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

We will be participating in the annual MLK Rally and March this Monday, January 18 starting at 11 a.m. at Garfield High School in Seattle. A group of Local 117 members will be meeting at the Union hall in Tukwila at 10 a.m. to carpool to the event.

You can RSVP for this event on our Union's website here.

MLK was not only an iconic leader in our country's struggle for Civil Rights, he also cared deeply about working families and spoke out against the challenges facing labor.  

Dr. King said:  “In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as 'right-to-work.' It provides no 'rights' and no 'works.' Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining…. We demand this fraud be stopped.” 

Please join us on January 18 as we pay tribute to Dr. King and his legacy. Look for the Teamsters 117 banner!
