Rally to End the Government Shutdown
Workers from all across the area rallied on Thursday, January 10th and marched to the White House to end the government shutdown. Politicians and labor leaders joined impacted workers to pressure GOP congresspeople and to put people back to work.
A reminder that the AFL-CIO has imposed a contract on Local 2 members in their downtown office. Their contract includes forced furloughs, much like what the government is doing now, and much like what the AFL-CIO claims to rally against. We will not back down on this issue. Wear your Local 2 shirts to show the AFL-CIO that we will not stand for those kinds of management tactics.
