The US Supreme Court heard the Janus court case on Monday, February 26, and on that day over 1,000 people rallied in Boston to support the Working People’s Day of Action. See coverage of the rally from the Boston Globe.
This moment is a call to action, and we are proud to share that we now have two City on a Hill charter schools that have organized to join our union. See our press release for more information. Leaders of of their organizing committee were welcomed with a standing ovation at our membership meeting.
While anti-labor corporate groups seek to undermine our freedom to ensure working people have a voice, our answer is to remain unified and grow. We know that our unions are critical as voices for all working people and our communities. That is why we must remain strong and need all of our members to participate in the BTU ALL-IN campaign by signing a new card!
Teachers in West Virginia continue their strike this week. We are proud to stand #UnionStrong in solidarity with them!
