On April 4, 2011, join your fellow Teamsters and take a stand for workers nationwide! Teamsters are taking part in this day of action to hold the line against corporate-backed politicians who have declared war on workers from Wisconsin to Ohio to states across the country.
Why April 4?
April 4, 2011 marks the 43rd anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who was killed in Memphis while fighting for sanitation workers’ rights to bargain collectively. Teamsters supported Dr. King throughout his struggle for civil rights and workers’ rights, and for decades, the Teamsters have led the charge to lift up the middle class.
Today, we are engaged in new battles in the war on workers. Politicians and their CEO supporters are pushing partisan agendas to strip workers of their rights and weaken the middle class. Teamsters and our allies are coming together on April 4th to take a stand against these attacks and secure the middle class we fought to so hard to achieve.
As Teamsters, we know the importance of having our union and a strong middle class. It’s time to stand up for all workers!
HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO ON 4.4.11:
Talk to at least FOUR union or non-union workers that you know about the importance of a union in your life.
Hand out at least FOUR fliers on the importance of unions.
Show the “Teamsters: The New Civil Rights Movement”, a video showing the Teamsters fight the war on workers, to at least FOUR people.
Sign at least FOUR people up for Teamster Take Action alerts so that they can be aware of any anti-worker legislation happening in their state.
