Join in Labor Day Events

CWA members rallied with Wal Mart workers

All Texas activists should take note that it is now more possible to work hand-in-hand with organized labor than it has been in more than 60 years. The national AFL-CIO is deliberately seeking coalition work with progressive organizations. They are committing themselves to work to help low-wage workers and immigrants, whether or not they are unionized. Food-service workers seeking $15 wages, Wal Mart workers looking for full-time jobs, and much-abused immigrant workers are all benefiting from union help.

The Texas AFL-CIO passes on a list of upcoming activities in the state:
