Even if you don’t work for a union…

…what happens to them can affect you too.

On Monday, February 26th, the Supreme Court begins hearing Janus v. AFSCME, a case that could usher in “Right to Work (for less),” a long-time scheme of anti-worker politicians and greedy corporations.

The goal of “Right to Work (for less)” is simple: to silence our collective voice by making it harder for working people to come together in unions.

We must stick together! No matter what the Supreme Court decides, no one can take our power if we stand united.

Join union members, community organizations, elected officials, and faith leaders from across Los Angeles for a massive display of unity and power. Together, we can protect all we’ve built: living wages, healthcare, workplace protections, a secure retirement, and a voice on the job.

Can’t make it? Represent at your worksite with stickers, posters and more from the Together We Rise Toolkit! https://www.seiu721.org/together-we-rise-toolkit.php
