NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION TO SUPPORT COLLECTIVE BARGAINING RIGHTS
February 24, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Collective bargaining rights are under attack, and we call on all working families to mobilize and make their voices heard during our national day of action on Saturday, February 24th. The national AFL-CIO has designated 14 target cities, including New York City and Philadelphia, where we will rally in order to maximize our collective voice.
We urge all New Jersey working families to show their solidarity next month. Be there on February 24th to stand up for our middle class values, a living wage, and the right to collectively bargain. Remember to also wear your union colors and show your union pride.

The far-right and corporate lobbyists are using the U.S. Supreme Court to advance their greedy agenda at the expense of all working families in a case called Janus v. AFSCME. Oral arguments are scheduled for February 26th, making the timing of our national day of action critical. This case is an assault on all working people that seeks to lower workers’ wages and eliminate collective bargaining rights.
This brazen ploy, to enrich the wealthy on the backs of hardworking families across the country, cannot be tolerated. Exercising the full strength of our united voice is how we must fight back against these attacks on all working families. We are proud that we can count on the support and solidarity of our entire labor movement in this crucial battle.
