Union members rally on labor issues

February 06, 1996|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

More than 250 union members and supporters, including Baltimore Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke, packed a General Assembly hearing room in Annapolis for a rally on labor issues last night.

Speakers vowed to support legislation that would allow unions to bargain contracts for state government workers, but fight "right to work" proposals that make union membership voluntary.

In urging support for collective bargaining rights for state workers, state Labor Secretary Eugene A. Conti Jr. said, "It's time to end the plantation."
