This year, as always, the Iowa City Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO and the University of Iowa Employee’s Union – AFSMCE Local 12, had floats in the UI Homecoming Parade on September 30. Our City Fed float even had a guest appearance by the “Dues Brothers.”
The Local 12 float came in second in the university section of the float competition.
our second-place AFSMCE-Local 12 Float. It had flashing lightning! And, if you look closely, you can see the AFSCME rainbow on the back of the float and Woodstock flying above that 1950s Herky!
