A march organized by the United Teachers of Los Angeles passes AT&T's Olive street facility in January.

Those whose afternoon path runs through Bunker Hill should be aware that the Communications Workers of America are planning a march on Friday afternoon that will be capped by a protest outside the AT&T offices at 433 S. Olive. The union, which represents 125,000 AT&T employees nationally, is in the midst of national contract talks with the communications company.

The march follows a morning Town Hall at Union Station with new U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis. The event, organized by the Veterans Committee of the L.A. County Federation of Labor, will run from 10am to noon.

According to LAPD, the CWA march will start from Union Station and travel south on Los Angeles to Temple, then west to Olive before turning south and ending with a protest outside AT&T. The department expects roughly 500 participants, with traffic impacts and possible street closures.

A flyer for the march lists a 3:30pm finish time.
