UNION T-SHIRTS - What a Bargain!

What Do I Make?

This is the link to pay rates since September 2016. - payrates

On Saturday, February 24, workers will gather in cities from coast to coast for a Working People’s Day of Action. It’s a chance to stand up against our rigged economic system and demand our right for social and economic justice – including for fair bargaining and union representation!

Click here to join the Working People’s Day of Action

The day is part of the commemoration for the 50th anniversary of the historic Memphis Sanitation Workers Strike. The strike was sparked by the tragic deaths of Echol Cole and Robert Walker on Feb. 1, who were sheltering from a storm inside their truck when it malfunctioned and crushed them. On February 12, 1968 the black sanitation workers went on strike to demand that their dignity, their humanity and their union be recognized.

The fight for a decent life for working people continues today. The Working People’s Day of Action is a chance to show our solidarity and willingness to fight for the right to unionize and stand up against our unjust economy that puts profits before people.
