Join MORE On Picket Lines With Con Ed Worker’s Thurs 7/5 1pm

July 4, 2012 — 1 Comment

The new caucus of the UFT, Movement of Rank and File Educators (MORE), will be joining the picket lines with locked-out Local 1-2 Utility Workers of Con Edison Thursday July 5th at 1:00pm. We picket with our union brothers and sisters because their fight is our fight. The Utility Workers are the mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters of many of our own students. As teachers we must be active role models in the community defending the families of our students.

MORE teachers can not stand idly by while our friends continue to have their retirement and healthcare demolished. We can not and will not watch the attack on workers continue while board members and stock holders who contribute nothing continue to get wealthier on the backs of unions. We will refuse to allow union busting to continue, the loss of benefits and wages is further erosion of the living standards of the American worker which in turn is the eventual destruction of this great country

Take a second to sign the NY State AFL Petition in support of the Con Ed workers as well…

Meet at 1:00 pm at The Whole Foods across from Union Square Park on E14th st off of Broadway
We will walk over to Picket Line together at 4 Irving Place New York, NY Con Edison Headquarters
