Frito Pies for the Furlough Fund

HOME OF THE FRITO PIEI just received this e-mail from an offical with the Communications Workers of America Local 7076, which represents about 3,000 state workers. The union has started a fund to help state employees who earn $10 an hours or less cope with the pending work furloughs.

The union will be selling Frito pies to raise money for the fund. That will be 11:30 am to 1 pm Thursday at the Montoya Building. (The price includes a soft drink.)

Donations to the furlough fund may be sent to the First Community Bank in the name of CWA 7076 Furlough Relief Fund, or directly to the CWA Union Hall at 460 St. Michael’s Drive, Bldg. 1000, Ste. 1001, Santa Fe, NM 87505
