“In everything they do, the Biden-Harris administration will make the concerns of working people their highest priority. They know that is the only way to build back better. They have an innate understanding of and deep affinity for the labor movement. They honor the sacrifices that public service workers make to keep our neighbors safe and healthy."

We need our front-line workers on the job to help millions of Americans get a COVID vaccine quickly and efficiently, yet they’re still being laid off. Cases are spiking across the country and millions of families are struggling to put food on the table. We need a comprehensive aid package, not a piecemeal approach. Call your senator at 1-888-981-9704 and tell them to #FundtheFrontLines.

To acknowledge that the position needs to be filled and the work must be done but not pay enough for a worker to survive is greed and corruption.

"Amazon's approach of dealing with its own workforce, labor unions, and social and environmental movements as a threat has grave implications for its workers' privacy and ability to join labor unions and collectively bargain—and not only in Europe. It should also be concerning to both customers and workers in the United States and Canada, and around the world."

PRESS RELEASE - “Voters have spoken. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s national victory is a huge win for working families in Texas. Joe Biden is the most pro-worker candidate to enter the White House in our history and Kamala Harris broke what had seemed like a shatterproof glass ceiling as the first woman and woman of color elected to national office.”

“This election has a union label on it. Unions mobilized in Texas and around the nation for economic justice and, in coalition with long-time allies, joined in the fight for racial justice and democracy. The inauguration on Jan. 20 cannot happen soon enough.”
