Hello Everyone,

Please join us via Zoom for our Workers Memorial Observance on April 28th at 4:00pm. Help us honor those who were killed on the job in 2020.

Build Back Better with Unions—Pass the PRO Act!

Call your U.S.

Take Action

Two pieces of legislation will take an important step toward fixing our unjust immigration system by providing permanent protections to vital members of our communities and our unions. Call your senators and urge them to support the Dream Act (S. 264) and the SECURE Act (S. 306) today.

Working people need laws that protect our rights to organize, keep us safe at work, and advance racial and economic justice. Tell our elected leaders to pass laws that put working people first.

Dear Union Brothers, Sisters, and Siblings,

IATSE Local 28 is small and needs some help. Please consider joining us at our next solidarity action outside the next Blazer home game. The Employer chose to give our Blazer Game key technical position jobs to managers instead of bringing in  the workers who have been out of work since March 10th, 2020. We were able to get one person  back to work. The others are still out in the cold. 

Lisa Pedersen of Revere, Massachusetts, has been a United Steelworkers (USW) member for 34 years. As “the first girl in [her] area” when she started as a gas leak investigator and repair person for the National Grid, Pedersen is used to being a leader. She is now a “working leader” at the National Grid, and her union loyalty and leadership instincts have particularly shone during the past couple of years.

Today, the AFL-CIO and GBAO released a nationwide poll of registered voters that found more than three-quarters of Americans support workers’ efforts to organize a union at the Amazon warehouse in Bessemer, Alabama. The findings come days after voting closed in the organizing drive and demonstrate a significant rise in public support.
