Pennsylvania union member plan to “educate” Congressman Dent on October 28th


Good morning!

In February of 2009, nearly 400 Labor activists and progressives met at the Hotel Bethlehem to “meet” Congressman Charles W. Dent as he bashed the Employee Free Choice Act to a couple of dozen business leaders at a Chamber Breakfast. As most of you know, EFCA isn’t even on a lit backburner, let alone the top of our priorities, but the Chamber sees fit to stir the pot in an effort to destabilize labor relations with companies while increasing billings for Atty. George Hlavac and the notorious, Tallman, Hudders & Sorrentino firm.

As you will see below, Dent is also taking money from the infamous Koch brothers who apparently have been illegally selling equipment to Iran. I do believe that we need to show the good Congressman that we are fed up with his nonsense!

Dent can fan the flames against labor; take money from American terrorists and yet he can’t find the time, nor the inclination to vote YES on a jobs bill. Worse yet, he has NO plans to encourage companies to hire. Dent needs to hear from us NOW.

Join the Lehigh Valley Labor Council and dozens of other unions and progressive groups on Friday, October 28th at the Hotel Bethlehem, 437 Main Street in Bethlehem Pa. We will begin greeting their honored guests at 10:30 and stay to 1:00 in order to give the Congressman a proper send off. If you recall from Feb. 2009, Dent entered and exited from the employee entrance of the hotel. This is the closest he has ever come to honest work. Let’s see if he has the guts to use the front door!

For questions on the event or if you want to r.s.v.p. respond via e-mail or call me at 610 360-9491.

In unity & solidarity,

Gregg Potter
President, Lehigh Valley Labor Council
