REGION, April 14th- On Saturday May 3rd, the Lehigh Valley Labor Council labor federation will hold their 47th annual awards dinner at the Northampton Memorial Community Center in Northampton.

Cocktails are available at 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm with dinner being served at 8:00 pm.

The Lehigh Valley Labor Council is affiliated with the American Federation of Labor and the Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) labor federation. The organization was formed in 2000 when the Northampton County Labor Council and the Lehigh County Labor Council merged.

According to Gregg Potter, President of the labor organization and a member of the Communications Workers of America (CWA) Union Local 13500, Pennsylvania Auditor General Jack Wagner will be quest speaker. Mr. Potter said Pennsylvania Governor Edward Rendell was invited as well to participate.

Tickets for the event cost $40.00 per person for “an evening of politically charged conversation, humor and solidarity,” stated Mr. Potter. Comedian Jimmy Carrol will provide entertainment.

Affiliated unions are represented at the organization by their members which serve as delegates. The local labor federation meets on the third Wednesday of each month.

For more information or to purchase tickets Mr. Potter can be reached at 610.360.9491.
