As we move into 2018, labor unions face increasing challenges. From the upcoming United States Supreme Court hearing the Janus v. AFSCME in late February to anti-union changes from the National Labor Relations Board, it is an undeniable fact that our right to belong to labor unions is under attack. In the Janus case, the goal is national right to work legislation which will decimate labor unions across the United States just like it has in the South. Our brothers and sisters in public sector unions are in the cross hairs now but make no mistake, we in the private sector are next.
There will be a rally in Foley Square in NYC on February 24th. Local 1049 will be there to support the fight against the enemies of our union brothers and sisters. Please make the time to join us. Information on the rally is below and we will talk about the rally at the February General meeting.
