Just as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood up for economic and racial justice, so do AFSCME members today. With strength and solidarity, we honor his legacy through action.
Let’s stand together to reaffirm our commitment to justice. We will Never Quit.
Thank you for honoring our union history
This month, tens of thousands of workers and their allies joined together in Memphis, Tennessee, for I AM 2018, a nationwide campaign to advance social and economic justice by drawing on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the 1968 Memphis Sanitation Workers’ Strike.
Please join us. Even if you couldn’t travel to Memphis, you can take part in this historic moment.
Such a short but powerful statement says that you're not going to let powerful interests rob working families of their freedom to join strong unions. Your recording will be a part of a chorus of workers who know that the fight for freedom has only just begun.
Sisters and brothers: We need to speak up together to secure our future.
Editor’s note: This is an excerpt from an op-ed Clover wrote for the The State Journal-Register, Springfield, Illinois.
As a lifelong Republican, I believe deeply that freedom is our most important American value. But I believe that freedom is for every American, not just the billionaires. And as a working man in a dangerous job, I value my freedom to join together with my co-workers in a strong union. …
Now a handful of billionaires want to make it harder to keep our unions strong. They’ve funded a legal case that’s gone to the U.S. Supreme Court, which heard oral arguments in the case on Feb. 26. If they win, 40 years of settled law that has kept me safer at work and able to live a modestly middle-class life could go right out the window.
