TODAY!

 

MASSACHUSETTS AFL-CIO, GREATER BOSTON LABOR COUNCIL,

and Other Leading Labor Organizations urge you to attend and mobilize members for an event to show

SOLIDARITY WITH WISCONSIN WORKERS!

Tuesday February 22nd
4:00 PM – 6:00 PM
at the Massachusetts State House on Beacon Hill in Boston

Join fellow union members and working families from the Massachusetts labor movement in a show of solidarity with the workers of Wisconsin, who are under attack from their anti-union governor. Governor Scott Walker’s extremist views and tactics in his mistreatment of honorable public employees cannot stand! Nothing is more sacred than the rights to organize and bargain collectively. No one should have them taken away!

As we continue to watch the amazing demonstrations by our brothers and sisters in Wisconsin in their fight for collective bargaining rights and for their jobs, benefits, and dignity, it is vital for us all to join this national show of solidarity with a large event in our own capital city. What is happening in Wisconsin is just the latest and most egregious in a constant series of attacks on labor and working families happening around the nation. Let us show leaders here, in Wisconsin, and around the nation that an injury to one is truly an injury to all. Join us Tuesday to make that message heard!

Your attendance at this event and your mobilization of your members will mean a lot to its success. If you have any questions, feel free to call Robert Bower, John Drinkwater or Chrissy Long at (781) 324-8230.
