Wear your support for US workers on your lapel

07 Apr 2011, By

The AFLCIO has produced a fund-raising badge to oppose attacks on working families and unions in Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio and other states, and we have a limited number for sale in the UK. For every badge purchased, $12.95 (£8.05) goes to workers and unions under attack.

Starting in Wisconsin, but now in other states, Republican Governors are using the excuse of high public sector deficits to justify taking away the right to collective bargaining – a fundamental human right – from public sector workers. The badges were launched for the 4 April We Are One solidarity actions – but the struggle continues.
