Happy Thanksgiving from Council 4

City of Norwich workers, AFSCME Local 2422, walk the picket line in support of striking L&M Hospital workers.

Thanksgiving is Thursday, Nov. 28, 2013.

We at Council 4 wish our members, families and friends a bright and bountiful holiday filled with thanks and good cheer. And Happy Hanukkah to all who are celebrating the joyous holiday.

As we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with our family and friends, don't forget workers who are fighting for respect on the job:

Nurses, LPNs and Techs at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital in New London are on an unfair labor practice strike. They've scheduled a big rally on Friday, Nov. 29 at noon. Click here for details.
