Is it important to you that the working families of this city receives fair wages and benefits?
This Saturday, January 19th, stand with teachers, librarians, street cleaners, students, and community members at the Stand Up Now Rally, from 10 am to noon at Independence Mall (5th and Chestnut), and remind Mayor Nutter that Martin Luther King of a better tomorrow for ALL--not just big corporations and their CEO's.
Mayor Nutter has refused to negotiate with firefighters and other public workers, endorsed the closing of 39 schools in Philadelphia, and continues to implement and support new anti-worker policy in Philadelphia. Workers and community groups will join forces and demand change, now.
There is no better time than Martin Luther King's Day Weekend to come together as a community and stand up for public workers. Dr. King put his life on the line for the organizing rights of sanitation workers, and this Saturday, we will celebrate that legacy.
We need to hold Mayor Nutter accountable to the promises he made to our city.
Unless we organize together and win, seventeen thousand students will lose their schools. Public employees will continue to work for yet another year without a contract.
Join Rev. Al Sharpton, AFT President Randi Weingarten, AFSCME President Lee Saunders, and many more. Bring your energy, take your friends and family, and let your voice be heard.
Join us and thousands of others this Saturday, January 19th at 10 am.
We hope to see you there--RSVP on Facebook!
