Thousands of Workers to Stand in Solidarity with Wisconsin Union Members

LOS ANGELES – On Saturday, March 26th, leaders of national labor organizations, as well as thousands of workers, students, and community and religious leaders will be participating in a Los Angeles march and rally, in solidarity with workers in Wisconsin and across the country.

In Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, Florida, Michigan and now in California, working families and their right to collective bargaining are under attack by the same big corporate CEOs that have fought to destroy these rights for private sector workers.

Across the country, working families are coming together and standing strong to hold onto our most basic worker rights and to protect our middle class way of life.
