2016 Labor Fair

On Saturday, March 5, 2016, the Central Labor Council of Nashville/Middle TN will host our second annual Labor Fair.  The Labor Fair will be held at Nashville Electrical Joint Apprenticeship Training Center located at 310 Fesslers Lane, Nashville, TN 37210 from 11:00am-1:00pm.  All local unions are invited to participate!

The purpose of the Labor Fair is to provide an opportunity for elected officials, candidates and community leaders to become familiar with the issues and concerns of union leaders and their membership, and to see the diversity of union workers that provide skills and services in Nashville and Middle Tennessee. 

We are asking participating unions to set up a table with information about your union, its work, your apprenticeship program (if applicable), a list of your union contractors (if applicable), and finally a vision statement about your union’s issues, concerns, priorities for Nashville and Middle Tennessee.

This event is designed to begin the relationship building process with public policy makers, and to showcase the world class local workforce our unions represent. Don’t miss this important event.   In order to make sure that you are set up and ready to greet our guests on the March 5, please arrive by 10:00am.  A short program to start our Labor Fair will begin at 11:00am and refreshments will be served.

For questions, you can contact Jason at 603-817-1128.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Join Us for Nashville's MLK Day March

In a speech to the AFL-CIO in March of 1961, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. aptly described the common themes of the Civil Rights Movement and the Labor Movement saying, "Our needs are identical with labor’s needs: decent wages, fair working conditions, livable housing, old-age security, health and welfare measures, conditions in which families can grow, have education for their children, and respect in the community."

On Monday, we encourage all members of the Nashville and Middle Tennessee Central Labor Council to show their Union pride with t-shirts, jackets and banners and join the march to celebrate the life and work of Dr. King.  The day begins with a Youth Program at the Jefferson Street Baptist Church at 8:30am.  A ceremonial march to Tennessee State University's Gentry Complex will follow at 10:00am.  There will be a convocation at the Gentry Complex at 11:00am, and a job fair will end the days events at 12:00pm.  

We hope to see many members of the Nashville Central Labor Council, their friends and family on Monday for these commemorative events.
