Supporting EFCA

On April 7, 2009, at Ithaca, NY — The Tompkins County Workers Center held a rally in support of the Employee Free Choice Act on the steps of the Tompkins Court House just prior to a meeting of the legislature.

Dave Marsh, President of the Building Trades Council, introduced Kate Bronfenbrenner, director of Labor Education Research at Cornell's School of Industrial & Labor Relations, followed by Pete Meiers representing the Tompkins County Workers Center and Marty Luster representing Ithaca Democratic Socialists of America . Legislators Pamela Mackesey, Carol Chock, Martha Robertson, Kathy Luz Herrera, Nathan Shinagawa, and Will Burbank spoke in turn giving context to their support of the Employee Free Choice Act and the pending resolution in support of the legislation to be taken up by the Tompkins County Legislature. That concludes the video, which is unedited raw footage of the rally.
