Local 47 was proud to participate in the inaugural Union Jobs Festival on Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014 at the Crenshaw Baldwin Hills Plaza.
Hosted by Congresswoman Karen Bass, the event welcomed more than 1,000 visitors to learn about area unions and labor-friendly organizations. Joining representatives from Working Californians, IBEW Local 18, LAANE, the United Firefighters of Los Angeles City, MTA, SCOPE, SFUA Local 709, Repower LA, and many more, Local 47 Electronic Media Division Administrator Gordon Grayson and Communications Director Linda Rapka were on hand to share information about Local 47, the Referral Service, and our #listenLA project.
Local 47 congratulates and thanks festival coordinator Anthony Mack for his efforts in putting together a very successful festival. Should this become an annual event as hoped, Mack looks forward to featuring a concert with Local 47 musicians at next year’s festival.
