POUGHKEEPSIE – The annual Labor Day rally, organized by Dutchess County Legislator Joel Tyner, drew a crowd of about 40 people, who heard mostly the same message as in the past. Tyner said one new side to the event this year was the focus on Saint Francis Hospital where SEIU Local 1199 has been trying to organize.
“We’re trying to make sure that there’s democracy in the workplace," Tyner said. "If the workers at St. Francis Hospital want a union, and most of them have signed cards saying they do want, they should be able to have one.”
