State labor leader to address local Democrats
May 10, 2011
Kathy Cummings, communications director for the Washington State Labor Council and a Sammamish resident, is due to address Democrats about workers’ income and rights May 18.
The local organization, the 5th District Democrats, meets at 7 p.m. at the King County Library Service Center, 960 Newport Way N.W. The meeting is open to the public.
The legislative district stretches from Issaquah to the Snoqualmie Pass, and from Sammamish to Maple Valley.
The labor council considers itself to be the “voice of labor” in Washington. The council represents and provides services for hundreds of local unions and trade councils.
Before joining the labor movement, Cummings worked for CNN, NBC and PBS. In addition, she has been active in supporting the rights of women in journalism.
