Labor group plans rally, dinner
The Westchester Putnam Central Labor Body will hold its annual rally Thursday, April 30 in Valhalla to commemorate workers who have died on the job, and later will sponsor a fund-raising dinner for a memorial.
Five local workers — Wayne Bleidner, Luis De Oliviera, Kenneth McGrath, Bruce Plunkett, and David Vasquez — will be remembered at the rally at Kensico Dam Plaza, starting at 4:45 p.m.
The dinner takes place from 6:30-9:30 p.m at the Colonial Mansion Caterers, 139 N. Broadway, in North White Plains. State Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins will receive the labor group’s Outstanding Public Service Award. Mike Trinchi, the group’s former labor liaison to the United Way, will receive the group’s Labor Service Award.
