New York, NY – On this episode of LaborPress’ Blue Collar Buzz, we welcome Michael DeVito, progressive candidate for Congress in the 11th District, as well as an outspoken supporter of striking IBEW Local 3 workers at Charter/Spectrum. Sanela Djencic returns to the show to talk about the impact the more than 400-day Charter/Spectrum strike is having on Local 3 families. Chief-Leader reporter Bob Hennelly also weighs in on the ongoing strike in a wide-ranging discussion on the current state of the U.S. Labor Movement. And DC1707 Executive Director Kim Medina joins us at the mic to continue our ongoing discussion about community-based Early Childhood educators and their fight for pay parity with their counterparts in the DOE.

As always, the broadcast version of this episode of Blue Collar Buzz can also be heard Sunday night at 9 p.m. on AM970.
