Unions Celebrate Labor Day 2023
Red Alliance/AFT shirts filled the room at the 2023 Labor Day Breakfast hosted by the Dallas AFL-CIO Central Labor Council. Then the Dallas County Democratic Party hosted its annual Labor Day Picnic on Monday, September 4th. Alliance members attended and were able to meet many current officeholders as well as candidates seeking political offices. It was a great event! Former Dallas ISD teacher Chris Leal serves as the new Executive Director for the DCDP and was a great host for this successful event.
Alliance/AFT is the largest teachers union serving Dallas ISD. We are a progressive organization that believes every member deserves to have respect for who they are and what they do, a fair wage, good working conditions, and quality benefits.
