Working People's Day of Action
Stand up for your freedom to join unions for a better life.
On Monday, Feb. 26, working people from across Massachusetts will join a national day of action to speak out for good union jobs. The actions are scheduled on the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments in the anti-union case Janus v. AFSCME. The case is backed by the same corporate CEOs and billionaires who brought us Question 2 and other anti-union privatization efforts.
Show your union solidarity by wearing a Working People's Day of Action sticker — and spread the message on social media using the hashtags #WeRise and #All_In. There are many ways to get the message out: Take a selfie or a group photo with co-workers and then share on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. In addition, you can attend one of the many events happening across the state. Fliers for these events are available below to download and share. You can also download a generic flier and customize it to announce a walk-in at your school or college, a group photo or another type of action of your choosing.
Stickers and fliers are being distributed to MTA affiliates across the state. If you are in need of materials, please contact your local president. There will be a lot of national media on the Janus case, and we need to show that we value what the anti-union billionaires are trying to take away.
Wear a sticker. Post a message. Go to an event near you.

Why Participate in the Working People's Day of Action
THE CHALLENGE: The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Janus v. AFSCME on Feb. 26. Backed by the same corporate CEOs and billionaires who want to privatize public education, this case is intended to weaken the power of public employees to organize for themselves, their families and the common good.
THE RESPONSE: We are striking back by building our collective power — member by member. Whether it’s defeating Question 2, stopping the GIC, fighting for a fair contract, or advocating for quality education for all students, we are All In for the freedom to negotiate collectively for a better future.
