Janus Decision Day Solidarity Rallies
On any Monday or Thursday coming before the end of June, the U.S Supreme Court could announce a ruling in Janus v. AFSCME Council 31, a political attack on working people aimed at further rigging our economy and democracy in favor of corporations and billionaires.
We strongly encourage all union members, retirees and their community supporters to rally on Decision Day to say: We are more resolved than ever to stick together and fight back!
The Washington State Labor Council is coordinating these response activities in our state. For more information on Janus Decision Day Solidarity Rallies, stay tuned to http://www.thestand.org by 7:30 a.m. each Monday or Thursday. The Stand will post the official decision and provide final information on rallies in our state. You can download their event flier here for more details: https://bit.ly/2sTl4gY.
The rights of workers to unionize and build a better life must not go undefended!
Also, that day, starting at 4:30 p.m., union members will be expressing their solidarity and determination to keep unions strong by waving Union Strong signs and banners at highway overpasses throughout the state. Seattle-area locations will be at the I-5 overpasses at N. 92nd Avenue, NE 45th Avenue, Olive Street, Madison Street, Yesler Way, and Albro Place. For information about other locations, email WSLC Field Mobilization Director Cherika Carter or call her at 206-281-8901.
