Wear your WPEA blue to work to show that you support public employees’ right to stand together in a union.
Post to Facebook, Twitter, or other social media using the hashtags #FreedomToJoin and #UnionStrong. Let people know why you support unions. Tell your story about how you, your coworkers, or your community have benefited from having a seat at the table to negotiate for better wages and safer workplaces.
If corporate special interests and anti-union politicians are successful in tearing apart our union, we know what will happen next. The politicians will roll us. We’ll see pay cuts and more outsourcing. Our tax code will get even more rigged. This is why it’s more important than ever to raise our voices and stick together. Let’s show them we’re not afraid of their attacks on public employees. Show them that you’re going to keep fighting for better wages, safer jobs, and stronger communities.
