Last spring, job seekers from the East Side and St. Paul in general crowded into the East Side Freedom Library to meet dozens of union employers and resources for the first Union Job and Resource Fair.

The first set of meetings started off with a round of introductions before each party explained their proposal. The Union proposal, which was derived from a combination of best practices, WFC surveys and results from listening sessions was presented item by item to the company.
