Supporting the Peoples World
A crowd of 90 supporters turned out for the annual People's Weekly World in Philadelphia December 2009 to honor United Steelworkers Local 404 as well as longtime People's World supporter Lou Incognito. The banquet honored Local 404 for its role in building the labor movement locally and for the union's role nationally in organizing the "Blue Green Alliance". Their award was accepted by local president Lindsay Patterson, who in turn presented a plaque to retiring subdistrict director Donald Harper. Also in attendance were USW District 10 director John DeFazio and Assistant Director John Zanetti, who both traveled from Pittsburgh for the event..
