Equal pay day, highlighting the plight of laborers under the south's Jim Crow laws, and more.
The Local 2 Racial Justice Working Group met last week to welcome new members and plan the direction for the Local in 2017. The meeting included members from SEIU, AFT, APWU, WMATA and others. The group will focus on the unique challenges facing people of color and allies in the workplace and the labor movement, the impact of the Black Lives Matter Movement on the fight for collective change and how Local 2 can be a part of the discussion of racial justice in our shops.
