North America's Strongest Union


Protests today against Wal-Mart, cuts to Social Security and Medicare

Today workers rallied in Washington to keep cuts to Medicare and Social Security out of the year-end budget deal while activists tried to block a ship carrying Wal-Mart goods from Bangladesh to the Port of New Jersey.

"Jobs not cuts" was the message delivered by hundreds of union supporters and community activists gathered on Capitol Hill this morning. Some traveled from as far as Wisconsin and New York.
