Despite the increased dangers and precarity brought on by the COVID-19 crisis, workers are joining together at workplaces across the country and finding new forms of leverage for winning their demands.
The Emergency Workplace Organizing Committee is a joint effort between DSA and the United Electrical, Radio, and Machine Workers of America (UE) to support workers organizing at their workplaces for better protections, higher pay, paid time off, and more.
On Thursday, June 25th, at 8pm ET/5pm PT, we’ll hear directly from grocery store workers, restaurant workers, and public service employees who have been organizing and winning demands at their shops!
RSVP below and we will send you important info to watch the live event.
During the livestream we will:
Learn from workers about organizing efforts and victories at Sprouts Organic Market, Jimmy John’s, and Taco Bell - including winning a $2 pay increase, back pay and paid time off for 250+ Taco Bell workers in Michigan!
Hear from public service employees from UE how they are fighting for better pay and protections during COVID-19
