Our country is divided – by ideology, by class, by race, by an urban/rural divide, and in many, many other ways. These divisions have been destructive to working people. Division is a tactic management uses to try keep us from improving standards. And now under a new national administration that’s driven by corporate and management thinking, laws may change that both impact the structures that help our union be strong and impact the safety and wellbeing of our communities.
Through our union, we can heal the divisions that exist within our membership, our families, and our communities. And through our unity we can have a strong union.
Our first step is to show up for a week of action to voice our objection to proposals that would make our nation less safe, less healthy, and more unjust.
