Our union is under attack from anti-union forces across the country. Now, more than ever, unionized workers must stand together to protect the gains that the labor movement has made over the years.

On Saturday, September 8th, unionized workers and their supporters will be taking over the streets of Manhattan. Standing strong, they will let the world know that despite the Janus decision the labor movement is very much alive. Unions will not be beaten down by Janus!
