Martin Law Firm Hosts Labor Council BBQ

The Northwest Arkansas Joint Labor Council hosted its annual Memorial Day barbecue May 31, 2018, at Martin Law Firm in Fayetteville. Members of several union locals as well as political candidates endorsed by the council picnicked and politicked.

Candidates attending included Donald McKinney, Democratic nominee for District 81 of the Arkansas House of Representatives, Denise Garner, Democratic nominee for state House District 84 and Democrat Nicole Clowney, presumptive representative (no opposition in November) for District 86.

Walter Hinojosa, president/secretary-treasurer of the area council, served as host.

Clowney, who teaches at the University of Arkansas, is a member of Local 965, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.
