Union Day of Action Across the U.S. and in Petaluma – October 19

This past year, we have witnessed a historic level of action across North America—the Women’s March, airport rallies protesting the Muslim ban, May Day actions, protests against police who kill African Americans, calls to extend TPS and DACA and protect immigrant rights, demonstrations against white supremacy, and more.   Now, more than ever, it’s time for working people to take a stand—and stand together. In Sonoma County, we are standing with hotel workers at the Petaluma Sheraton, who are leading the fight for fair wages and benefits in the booming North Bay hospitality industry. We are planning to mobilize more than 20,000 members in 20 cities across North America to show that standing together in union is the best way to create an economy that works for everyone—not just the wealthiest 1%.
WHEN: Thursday October 19, 2017
