Dec. 6th Day Of Worker Justice In Montpelier

COME TO MONTPELIER to participate in a day of action to support the Montpelier Downtown Workers' Union. From marching on J. Morgan's Steakhouse to insist that they stop their illegal union-busting and recognize the union to supporting the union workers at the five other businesses where they have formed unions by patronizing these establishments - let's show our support for these courageous service workers' groundbreaking new organization!

Events of the Day:
- 9:30am to 3:30pm: Vermont Labor Conference at State House, Learn about building VT's labor movement & organizing to win!
- 12:30pm to 1pm: March for Worker Justice starting at State House steps

* Dec. 10th Rally To Protect The Freedom To Join a Union, 8:30am Montpelier Rally and then bus to regional action in Boston at National Labor Relations Board

WHAT'S HAPPENING: The freedom to join a union has been taken away. Employers routinely harass and intimidate -even fire- workers to deny their legal freedom to choose for themselves whether to have a union. Join us on December 10th to rally in Montpelier and get on the bus to rally with thousands of others in Boston to proclaim that our freedom to bargain and to choose a union is a fundamental human right.

If you can't go to Boston, join us in delivering letters to Senator Jeffords' office urging him to support labor law reform in Burlington in the afternoon.

- 8:30 am, Rally in Montpelier at J. Morgans, 100 State Street - 9am, bus leaves Montpelier for Boston - 3pm, deliver letters to Senator Jeffords' office in Burlington

MORE INFO: Contact Vermont AFL-CIO to reserve a bus seat at 802-223-5229 or hleyshon@workingfamilies.com.
