This Saturday, union members, and working people will be holding rallies across the country to protest the upcoming Janus v AFSCME Supreme Court case. The case, which will be heard on Monday, will significantly hurt public sector unions ability to collectively bargain and represent their membership.

The rallies will unite both private and public sector unions as well as non-union workers. In addition to February 24th being the final Saturday before the Supreme Court hears the Janus arguments, it is also the 50th anniversary of the Memphis Sanitation Workers strike. On February 24 th 1968, mostly African American sanitation workers marched through the streets with Dr. Martin Luther King wearing their famous “I Am A Man” signs. Now 50 years later, we are once again taking to the streets to let everyone know that union members are willing to fight for their right to collectively bargain. Below are the dates, times and locations for Saturday’s Rallies. Some cities like Los Angeles and Boston are not listed because they will be holding rallies on Monday, the day the Court hears the Janus case. Please follow UCOMM on Facebook and Twitter for updates from the Saturday rallies as well as from Monday’s rallies.
