AFSCME Local 34 Lapel Pin

"Congratulations to the winner of the Local 34 lapel pin design contest. Yee Vue, a worker in the Elderly and Disabled Division of Economic Assistance, won with his design of a circle with two hands joined under a colorful umbrella with a rising sun. Yee used these words to describe his design: the two hands shaking represent partnership, coming together or appreciation. The umbrella represents protections, shelter or a roof for all of us. The colors of the umbrella represent our diversity, different nationalities and different cultures. The shining sun represents our hopeful future and strength with the rays representing reaching beyond our dreams, goals and accomplishments. The circle of the pin is "all union members coming together as one local."  Special thanks to Mr. Vue for his symbolic design.
