  The Fourth Annual "Salute to Labor" Awards Dinner given by the Sacramento Central Labor Council on October 23rd saluted Union Ambassador Steve Smith, gave a Lifetime Achievement Award to Jim Murphy (Ironworkers Local 118), AND presented our own Local 250 Healthcare Workers Union with an "Excellence in Organizing" award. More than 4,000 healthcare workers in the Sacramento area were "organized" by Local 250 in the last year, and now they are us, or we are them, or some combination of the above....Anyway, we at Mercy Hospitals Sacramento are a result of the "spirit and persistence" they exhibited in our enlistment and I hope this is the beginning of a great new era for healthcare providers and everyone that strives for justice and excellence in the workplace.

 
  Here everyone is at the Radisson Hotel, mingling before the "Salute to Labor" event. Do I know all these people? No, I don't, and that is why many of these captions will not specify who is pictured. You should think of them all as persons who have worked hard for Unions and the people in them, and who are here to celebrate both.

 
  Union members.....

 
 

OK, I DO know some of these people. Sharon Martinez (left) and Lydia Bone (next to Sharon) were on Union leave to participate in election-related events. They worked hard and deserve to be celebrated!


 
  More union members...

 
  And even more union members...
