ILA President Harold J. Daggett Urges Members to Participate in this Saturday’s National Day of Action

Working Peoples Day of Action

The Supreme Court will soon hear a case that will have a big impact on our voice at work. That’s why working people across the country are making a clear stand to keep the freedoms that we’ve fought for.

On Saturday, Feb. 24, there will be a day of action, with local events happening coast to coast, to defend our voice on the job and demand an end to an economy designed to favor the rich and powerful on the backs of working families.

Fifty years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. joined striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee, as they fought for the freedom to join together in a strong union and be treated with dignity and respect at work. They carried signs that boldly proclaimed: “I Am a Man.”

Fifty years later, corporate lobbyists and special interest groups are bringing a case against working people, Janus v. AFSCME Council 31, to the Supreme Court. These are the same extremist voices that actively work to limit voting rights, roll back economic protections, and gut civil and labor rights laws. They’re ratcheting up their fight to break us up because they know we are strongest together.

Let us know you’ll attend a Working People’s Day of Action event near you.

When working people speak with a unified voice, we are able to affect the issues and win. That makes it much harder for wealthy elites to tip the economic scales further out of balance.

James, bring your family. Tell your neighbors. Invite your friends. Now is the time for working people to band together, hold the line on our freedom to join together to make improvements at work and demand an economy that works for everyone.

In Solidarity,

Harold J. Daggett
President
International Longshoremen’s Association, AFL-CIO

The ILA, along with other union leaders from the area, attended a meet and greet with candidate Justin Nelson at the Communication Workers of America (CWA) union hall in Houston, Texas. Nelson also spoke to the recent Texas AFL-CIO COPE Convention in Austin, Texas where several statewide labor-friendly candidates were endorsed.

Alan Robb, South Atlantic & Gulf Coast District President, in a letter to Rick Levy, Texas AFL-CIO COPE President, affirmed his support for Nelson stating that he “has the credentials and qualifications to be a great attorney general for Texas. We think he will be a true champion for Texas working men and women we have not had in Texas since our friend Jim Mattox.”
