Local 21 Members Join Thousands Across the Country for “We Are One” Rallies

On April 4, Local 21 members joined thousands of Union members and working families across the country for rallies in solidarity with workers in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana and dozens of other states where right-wing politicians and anti-union corporate agendas are seeking to take away hard-won benefits and collective bargaining rights.

The rallies took place on the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination.  King was assassinated in Memphis in 1968, where he had gone to stand with public sector sanitation workers who were fighting for the right to bargain collectively, earn a fair wage, and ensure safe working conditions.
