Forty-three years ago, just before his assassination on April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood with 1,300 Memphis sanitation workers to demand human rights, basic respect and collective bargaining to gain a better life. Today, hundreds of thousands of working people are taking the same stand- together.
Join us to make April 4, 2011, and the days surrounding it a time to stand in solidarity with working people in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana and dozens of other states. It’s a time to show movement. A time to be creative, but clear: We are one. Collective bargaining is one of the most effective tools for improving workers conditions and ensuring a fair wage, and it has served SAG members well since 1933. Please join us in standing up for workers’ rights.
