Subject:   [september17discuss] Labor Outreach/Support

A labor oriented group is forming at Occupy Wall Street. We have contacted some unions in struggle. We are intending to join the picket line of the locked out workers at Sotheby’s (72nd St and York Ave.) at a time still being set by Teamsters Local 814 who have asked us to come on Thursday. There will be a flyer to invite people to join us.


We are also planning to go to the picket of the Hotel Trades Local 6 which is fighting for a union and a contract at the Boathouse in Central Park at 72nd St. Workers there said they need us most on the weekend.


We will try to make further plans at a meeting at the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Liberty Park (Liberty St & Broadway) at 7:40 PM Tuesday – so long as it doesn’t conflict with a General Assembly. We will check that out and make an adjustment if necessary.


Come to the meeting, bring others and get others to join us on the picket lines.  


If you are interested in joining the committee, show up or email me at
