Take Action

Wealthy corporate executives and their lobbyists have filed a legal challenge to keep Fair Share Amendment off the ballot. They don’t want to pay a little more to make investments in our transportation and public education systems. If they win the lawsuit, they will take away your right to vote on the Fair Share Amendment in 2018. We’re confident that the Fair Share Amendment will withstand this legal challenge, but the corporate lobbyists want to keep it tied up in court - please sign the petition to add your voice in defense of the Fair Share Amendment

On February 26th, thousands of working people across Massachusetts will join a national day of action as we speak out for good, union jobs. The Working People’s Day of Action coincides with the Supreme Court hearings on the Janus vs. AFSCME case. That case is part of a well-funded campaign by the wealthy special interests to divide us from our co-workers – and to limit the power in numbers we have together in a union. Actions are currently being planned in Boston, Springfield, Southeastern MA, Lawrence, Amherst and more. 

Unions help build a better life for working people but the wealthy are trying to further rig the economic system in their favor. Show your support for unions.
