Almost 200 members of IBEW Local 24 turned out to represent our union and all Maryland working people at the annual Labor Night Rally in Annapolis on the evening of Monday, March 21, 2016.
The rally, which is coordinated every year by the Metropolitan Baltimore Council AFL-CIO, took place before the MD General Assembly’s Monday night session, and included members of various Maryland unions representing the Building Trades and public and private workers. Union members come out to remind our elected officials that our priorities are good jobs, fair wages and safe working conditions.
Speakers included Local 24 member and MD Delegate Cory McCray (District 45, Baltimore City) and MD Delegate Jimmy Tarlau (District 47A, PG County) who was a representative for the Communications Workers of America (CWA) prior to his election.
Local 24 Business Manager Gary Griffin, Metropolitan Council President Ernie Grecco and MD & DC AFL-CIO Secretary Treasurer Donna Edwards also spoke.
