We at the City Union of Baltimore are deeply saddened to hear of the violent death of a city employee. Our heart & prayers go out to the victim's family and all members of AFSCME Local 44. We in labor are all brothers and sisters and when tragedy strikes one of us, it strikes all of us.
The workplace should never be a place violence calls home. The women and men who do great work for this city should feel safe and comfortable performing the necessary task to make Baltimore great. We are terribly saddened by the news and offer our sincerest prayers and condolences to the family and loved ones of the victim as well as to our sisters and brothers in labor at AFSCME Local 44.
Yvonne Rice, President
City Union of Baltimore
