Strong Unions, Stronger Communities

Several major unions have released a report and graphics Strong Unions, Stronger Communities and we hope you will amplify it via social media using the accompanying toolkit and that you’ll talk about it with your respective communities.

The report details several cases around the country in which strong unions have led to positive outcomes for entire communities, making them stronger and safer. Whether it’s EMS workers negotiating for better staff ratios that decrease emergency response times, or teachers speaking up together for smaller class sizes, the report underscores that strong unions are needed now more than ever.

We need your help to create momentum and focus renewed attention among our friends and elected officials about the value unions currently bring to our country. This issue is particularly important in light of the Supreme Court case, Janus v. AFSCME, which is an unprecedented attack on the freedom of working people to join strong unions.

Thank you for your support!

Here are some things you can do to help:

  • Post to social media using the toolkit we have prepared
  • Reference and share the report with allies in speeches and at conferences and meetings
  • Write an op-ed or LTE, referencing one of the cases in the report or another in your community
  • Ask your elected officials to speak about the value of unions to their communities
  • Hold an event or rally in your community to highlight the value of unions to everyone
