February 26th Day of Action

Dear Ivia,

Join Us For Our February 26th Day of Action Rallies!

America needs union jobs.

This Monday February 26th, please join thousands of working people across Massachusetts who will come together for a national day of action as we speak out for good union jobs. The Working People's Day of Action coincides with the Supreme Court hearings on the Janus vs. AFSCME case. That case is part of a well-funded campaign by the wealthy special interests to divide us from our co-workers - and to limit the power in numbers we have together in a union.

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 Monday, working people are rising up to defend the very freedoms for which Dr. King fought and died for, including the freedom to join a strong union for a better life. #werise


 Please join us at the following Massachusetts actions:

Your steward and chapter leadership will also have stickers to pass out to show solidarity for working families and good union jobs.

On social media, send pictures of you and your co-workers wearing your stickers to twr@seiu509.org. Plus, post these photos to our Facebook and Twitter pages. Use the hashtag: #werise.

Join us and RSVP:
