Labor calls for a Week of Action, April 2-8

Pride At Work AFL-CIO

Responding to a call from the AFL-CIO for a Week of Action to defend collective bargaining rights and state budgets that put people before profits, local labor organizations have put together a program of actions for the first week in April.

SATURDAY, APRIL 2
2 p.m. at Peace Arch Park in Blaine

This International Solidarity Event will bring together unionists, students, activists from Canada, Washington and Oregon to extend hands across the border in solidarity with all workers.

This event will be co-sponsored by the British Columbia Federation of Labour; the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO; and the Oregon AFL-CIO. Please email Lori Province from the WSLC about mobilization efforts.

SUNDAY, APRIL 3
6:30 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle

Join IATSE Local 15 for Solidarity Night at Billy Elliot: The Musical.

This is a Union production. Actors are members of Actors Equity; stagehands, IATSE Local 15; hair and makeup, IATSE Local 488; and wardrobe, IATSE Local 887; and musicians, AFM 76-493 and other locals.

Tickets range from $26.30 to $56.90. For tickets or information, contact IATSE Local 15 at 206-441-1515 ext. 225 or stagerep@ia15.org. Tickets at these group rates are limited, so please get in touch now!

MONDAY, APRIL 4
5:30-7 p.m. at MLK Memorial Park in Seattle

The Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968, at 6:01 p.m. in Memphis, Tenn., where he was standing with sanitation workers demanding their dream of a better life. Today, the right to bargain collectively for a voice at work and a middle-class life are under attack as never before.

Join in this Community Call to Action on April 4 at the MLK Memorial Park, 2200 Martin Luther King Jr. Way in Seattle. Stand with other civil and human rights activists, union members and supporters, Latinos, Asians and immigrants, religious supporters, environmental, student and women's groups against a political agenda that is attacking working families, their human rights and their dignity.

This event is sponsored by the Communications Workers of America, A. Philip Randolph Institute, M.L. King County Labor Council, Washington State Labor Council, WFSE Local 304, the Labor Council for Advancement of Latin Americans and the AFL-CIO.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 6
Noon at the Capitol

Washington Community Action Network will bring hundreds of community activists and students to Olympia in an attempt to find the sacrifices that the Legislature will make the bankers and billionaires pay to get us out of the economic crisis.

For information visit www.washingtoncan.org

THURSDAY, APRIL 7
Health care unions, led by SEIU, will mobilize health care workers in Olympia to demand that the Legislature fix the deficit problems and to look into the faces of the victims.

For information visit www.seiu775nw.org

FRIDAY, APRIL 8
Noon at the Capitol Steps

THIS IS THE BIG ONE! A major Labor Rally at the Capitol in Olympia. Washington's working families are tired of being blamed and punished for the damage done by Wall Street banks and corporations. Join thousands of public- and private-sector workers from all trades as we stand together as one and demand that lawmakers PUT PEOPLE FIRST! We want good jobs, we want our rights, and we want them NOW!

Many unions are organizing buses or ride-sharing to get to this rally. Contact your local union to see if transportation is available.
