Supervisor Bosworth Honored at LI Federation of Labor Annual Dinner
North Hempstead, NY – Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth recently attended the Long Island Federation of Labor’s Annual Dinner on March 3 at the Hilton Long Island, in Huntington, where she was one of the evening’s three honorees. Supervisor Bosworth was honored alongside Anthony D. Macagnone, Councilman, Town of Oyster Bay; and Dr. Shaun L. McKay, President of Suffolk County Community College.
The 250,000 member Long Island Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, represents a wide range of union workers and is the voice of the Long Island labor movement.
Supervisor Bosworth was honored for her strong ongoing support of labor and unions and especially for passing a local law last year requiring contractors doing business with the Town to participate in an apprenticeship program for certain large commercial projects, ensuring that younger workers are trained and have the skill set to ensure that these skills are passed onto our next generation of workers.
“It’s such an honor to be recognized by the Long Island Federation of Labor,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “I have always said that our union members are the heart and soul of our workforce and contribute to the quality of life for all of here in the town of North Hempstead. Thank you to John Durso and the Long Island Federation of Labor for the essential work they do here on Long Island.”
