The Nobel Peace Prize winner will headline the rally sponsored by the Building and Construction Council of Greater New York, the umbrella group representing more than 100,000 workers citywide. The rally will highlight Mr. Walesa' experience in leading the solidarity movement that defeated Communist rule and how solidarity among union members and working men and women can fight exploitation and rebuild America's middle class.
“Lech Walesa is legendary figure who epitomizes what the union movement is all about in the U.S. and aroundthe world: strength, spirit and solidarity,” said Gary La Barbera, president of the Building and Construction
Trades Council of Greater New York. “We know that solidarity is critical to advancing the union movement and the rights of workers everywhere, and this is exactly what will be on display at this historic rally.”
