Over the last several years, we have seen attacks on workers’ rights across the country. The victories we secure on the streets and at the bargaining table are directly linked to the ballot box. The gains we make are under siege by management teams, often elected public officials, trying to use our country’s economic and public health crises as reasons to take away our hard-earned wages and benefits.
Please join your fellow coworkers on Wednesday, February 23, 2022, for our chapter meeting. You can join us, via Zoom, at either 12 pm or 5:30 pm. At the meeting, we discuss issues at the workplace, organize and build upon our victories, go over the upcoming political elections, and other issues.
The agenda for February 23, 2022:
Welcome and introductions
Issues at worksites
Organizing and building upon our victories
The upcoming political season
Bay Area Elected Leaders Pledge Support for Working Families Against Billionaire-Backed Assault
