Union members, legislators find common ground at Missouri AFL-CIO BBQ in the Park

Jefferson City – The Missouri AFL-CIO’s annual Barbecue in the Park April 25 offered union members and legislators from throughout the state a chance to find common ground as they relaxed and enjoyed food and drinks away from the increasingly tense and embattled atmosphere inside the State Capitol.

The weather was perfect, with sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s, as worker-friendly legislators, state office holders, union leaders and rank-and-file members gathered at Memorial Park in Jefferson City to relax, talk over this year’s legislative session, sign the petition to the Citizens’ Referendum calling for a public vote to repeal this year’s so-called “right-to-work” legislation and vow to keep up the fight to protect workers’ rights against paycheck deception, attacks on prevailing wage and other anti-worker measures.
