On Saturday, union members from public and private sector unions will be uniting to rally against attacks on our collective bargaining rights. The NJ AFL-CIO is asking our members to go to either the New York City Rally or the Philadelphia Rally. Both will take place on Saturday morning.
Over the last few years, the attacks on our collective bargaining rights have only increased. In less then a week, the Supreme Court will hear a case, Janus v. AFSCME, that could further erode public sector unions power. If we don't step up and fight this now, it is only a matter of time before they come for us. Our unity as a union is why we are strong and we must stand united with our brothers and sisters in labor. I have provided more details about both rallies below.
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.
