Somerville residents and local officials will gather in Union Square on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 at 5:00pm to celebrate the beginning of a partnership called the MassWIN-GLX program. The program is the result of an organizing campaign by Jobs for Somerville, with support from the Somerville legislative delegation, the City of Somerville, and the MBTA. It will help low-income and minority residents of Cambridge, Somerville, and Medford get access to training and job placement on the construction and operation of the Green Line Extension. An MOU was signed on Wednesday, June 18 to formalize the creation of the program.
