Holiday Spotlight: Seasonal Favorites in the Nation’s Capital

December 15, 2016 Monika Greenhow

After surviving a game-changing national election that will change the landscape of our nation, Washington, D.C., gears up for the final holiday season of the Obama administration. From a union perspective, 2016 has been a year of action and progress. A few of the many highlights include supporting our brother and sister service workers in their continuing fight for a living wage at National and Washington Dulles airports, seeing the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) approve new contracts with Safeway and Giant and our continued participation in the ongoing Fight for 15. We salute the work of all our union brothers and sisters in their fight to build a strong middle class.

As anyone who has visited D.C. during the holiday season knows, our nation’s capital represents when it comes to displaying some serious yuletide spirit. When you’re not hunkering down against the cold with family, friends and loved ones, we invite you to take advantage of some of the enchanting holiday offerings.
