2014 Minnesota AFL-CIO Convention


web.MNAFLCIO-Conv-volunteerSaint Paul played host to the Minnesota AFL-CIO‘s biennial convention Sept. 21-23 at the Crowne Plaza Riverfront hotel. The Regional Labor Federation coordinated several events for delegates, from volunteer opportunities to social events.

  • Blood Drive. The St. Paul RLF’s AFL-CIO Community Services program and the Red Cross co-hosted a blood drive, and 33 delegates to the convention participated.
  • Speed Volunteering. Delegates helped assemble 400 healthy snack packs, which Community Services liaisons donated to Boys and Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities.
  • Toiletries Collection. Delegates donated  unused personal hygiene items from their hotel rooms to the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans.
  • Variety Show. The RLF hosted a variety show and dinner for delegates, featuring union musicians Radio Joe and the Jazzbos; a comedy-magic act by Star Newman, a member of the Stagehands union; and a competition to determine which table could create and perform the best union chant.
