The times? Well, for all that they change, you can bet that a few things aren't all that different.

Kyle Henderson, Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 184 business manager, didn’t have to invite Andy Beshear to Paducah Saturday night for the union's 120th anniversary dinner.

Henderson told the big crowd that after the Democratic gubernatorial hopeful heard about the celebration, he phoned him and said, "Kyle, I’ve got to be there. I’ve got to come and talk to my friends.”

The weather is turning and so is the calendar. Which can mean only one thing – Election Day is just around the corner. But as a union member you know that the hard work to elect pro-working family candidates up and down the ballot has already begun.

We have only a few more weeks until we are stuck for the next few years with the election winner. Every little bit helps and that is why we are asking you to participate in the Kentucky AFL-CIO labor walk program.


Matt Bevin on why he dropped Hampton: “...the things she wants to focus on are not the things that I've mentioned as we look forward…. She loves going into schools and talking to kids.”
