UFT President Michael Mulgrew was among the honorees at the first annual Tying Communities Together Labor Breakfast celebrating New York City’s labor union movement and its bond with working families, the middle class and the black press at Harlem’s Alhambra Ballroom on Sept. 8. The event, which was sponsored by the New York Amsterdam News and Bill Lynch Associates, cited Mulgrew for “outstanding service in support of the labor movement of New York.” Also honored were distinguished labor attorney Basil Paterson and Teamsters Local 237 President Gregory Floyd. Accepting the award on Mulgrew’s behalf was UFT Director of Community and Parent Outreach Anthony Harmon, who underscored the importance of communities organizing and being united in support of workers, the poor and the middle class, both locally and nationally. “Because of our great partnerships, we feel that we will prevail,” Harmon said.
