Went to our Labor Council meeting this evening. Apparently our labor council president was asked to be there--the night before (he had offered himself up a month before, with no takers). Of course, he's been really busy working on the movie stuff right now, being the IATSE business agent for the region which stretches from roughly the Fox Valley to the Michigan/Wisconsin border and halfway across the state, so he was not able to come pose for pics as the token union person on such short notice. But the pictured folks did ask him for information on how the money stuff positively influenced the community, yadda yadda and gave him no credit for such information. As a fellow union person, I can relate--we don't really appreciate being trotted out as token people and then told to go back to doing grunt work with hardly any recognition of organized labor and ordinary folks contributions. Kinda gets to you after while.
