Celebrating our Accomplishments and Honoring Our Activists at NSLC's 2015 Legislative Dinner

The 17th Annual North Shore Labor Council Legislative Dinner was held at Angelica’s Restaurant in Middleton on February 6, 2015.  Despite a snowy, cold winter that started late, and then wouldn’t quit, over 160 guests, delegates, and awardees attended the dinner.  The dinner provided an opportunity for like-minded labor activists to meet and mingle in a comfortable and welcoming setting: old ties were reinforced and new connections were forged.  It was inspiring to see Salem teachers, Lynn firefighters, Fairpoint strikers, immigrant workers, and a myriad of other labor and working people all connecting and finding common ground. The connecting thread between all the attendees – labor delegates, awardees, community activists, politicians – was the commitment to working people and the ideal of labor and the NSLC: ‘no union, no worker stands alone.’
