The Humboldt-Del Norte Central Labor Council invited union members, allies, friends and community partners to join them in showing support of working people standing together. The rally will be on the County Courthouse steps this Tuesday July 3rd at 5pm. “We will not stand idly by and allow attacks on workers and their families. Experience shows us that you don’t get you deserve in life. You get what you fight for!” said President Mike Hetticher. “And we’re ready to fight.”
The Supreme Court voted 5-4 last week to overturn over 40 years of precedent and a previous 9-0 decision–effectively making the public sector right-to-work(for less) across the entire nation. This has been a long-sought goal of powerful corporate money interests to try to break labor and continue their attacks on working people. Speakers will underline the importance of having a voice in the workplace, livable wages, dignity in retirement, and everything that having a collective voice brings.
We look forward to seeing you there!
