On February 26th, thousands of working people across Massachusetts will join a national day of action to speak out for union jobs. The Working People’s Day of Action coincides with the Supreme Court hearings on the Janus vs. AFSCME case.
This case is part of a well-funded campaign by wealthy special interests to divide working people – and to limit the power in numbers that workers have together in a union.
But we know that when we fight together, we're stronger. Fifty years ago, in February 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. joined striking sanitation workers in Tennessee as they fought for the freedom to join together in a union for dignity and respect on the job. This February, workers are rising up to defend those very freedoms.
Will you join us?
