Organized labor officials are hosting a rally and BBQ “to support frontline workers and to build back better with unions,” according to the AFL-CIO.
U.S. Sens. Warren and Markey, U.S. Reps. Clark, Pressley and Auchincloss, Attorney General Healey, Secretary of State Galvin, Boston Mayor Janey, and Boston mayoral candidates John Barros, Andrea Campbell, Annissa Essaibi George, and Michelle Wu are among those expected to attend the event put on with the Greater Boston Labor Council.
AFL-CIO head Steve Tolman and GBLC Executive Secretary-Treasurer Darlene Lombos will also participate alongside other labor union officials.
The 11 a.m. rally will be a masked event, organizers said and the BBQ will follow at noon. The rally will focus on workplace equity, opportunity and safety, as well as the ways unions can help in the recovery if the government directs federal COVID recovery funds to sectors like housing and public transit.
The event will take place on Monday at Marriott Copley Place, 110 Huntington Ave., Boston.
