Working People’s Day of Action Rally

Day-of-Action-Logos_Main-01-01Mark your calendars to participate in the Working People’s Day of Action on Saturday, Feb. 24 at the Ohio Statehouse in downtown Columbus. This rally is part of a National Day of Action being held in 10 cities across the U.S. to protect workers’ freedoms and support strong unions.
 
• What: Working People’s Day of Action Rally
• Date: Sat., February 24
• Time: Gathering begins at 10:30 a.m.; rally begins at noon
• Location: Ohio Statehouse, Columbus, OH
 
Why are we rallying?
Just like with the dangerous Senate Bill 5, politicians at the Statehouse are trying to take away collective bargaining rights again and want to make Ohio a Right to Work state. But, instead of legislation this time, they want to put the attacks before Ohio voters with six proposed anti-worker ballots initiatives. Nationally, a U.S. Supreme Court case, Janus vs. AFSCME Council 31, would make the entire country Right to Work for public employees if the court sides with anti-union groups like the Koch Brothers, ALEC and the National Right to Work Committee. The Court will hear oral arguments on the case on Feb. 26, two days after the Working People’s Day of Action!
 
For these reasons and more, we need a strong showing of workers–public and private–against these attacks at the event on February 24! These attacks on public employees are no more than attempts to divide workers and limit our power! Because, as we all know, unions give workers a powerful voice to speak up—speak up for fair wages, affordable health care, a dignified pension and strong public services!
 
And that’s why America needs unions now more than ever!! Just like we did when we took down Senate Bill 5, when we join forces and stick together, WE ARE UNSTOPPABLE!
