Huge Crowd Turned Out to Tell City Hall, “No Deal!”

AFSCME 3090 Joins City Unions, Community Groups at Noontime Rally

More than 1,000 Los Angeles City employees and supporters, including a lively contingent from AFSCME 3090, turned out for the Day of Action on Oct. 28 to march on City Hall. Chanting, “Banks got bailed out, we got sold out!” protestors marched from downtown’s Financial District to the steps of City Hall to let City leaders know they will not stand for bad bank deals that are costing the city millions of dollars, reducing city services or creating higher payments for employee health care.

AFSCME 3090 president Alice Goff and Board member Eva Espinosa spoke at the rally and got the crowd revved up, denouncing the bad deals and cuts city leaders have made that have driven city services into the ground.

How the Fire Stole Christmas

The massive structure fire that occurred in downtown L.A. just may have stolen Christmas from seniors in need this holiday season…unless you can help. Gift bags for homebound, frail and other seniors were destroyed in the blaze. The bags contained necessary items for these folks, and if you would like to donate to help replace what was lost, Mayor Garcetti and his wife Amy Wakeland have set up a fund here. Thanks in advance to all who contribute.
