4Cs members are committed to stick together in our union, despite today’s decision by the Supreme Court that makes it easier for anti-worker extremists to rig the economy further by dividing working people.
We won’t let any court case stand in the way of our fight for the good, union jobs that our communities need. We know that when working people are united in a union, they have the power in numbers to raise wages, secure basic needs like healthcare coverage, improve their jobs, make life better for their families and build stronger communities.
Today’s ruling only makes 4Cs members even more determined to:
- Stick together with their co-workers in their union
- Unite more workers together in unions to turn poverty-wage jobs into good, union jobs
- Hold politicians accountable for doing everything in their power to help more workers join together in unions to create the most inclusive middle class in our nation’s history
4Cs members are joined by working people from across the nation who are showing their unity in the face of this decision by holding up signs with a simple message: UNION. Photos and videos of people holding UNION signs are being posted on social media using the hashtag #Union.
You are also invited to join us at a press conference in front of the Hartford Supreme Court at 4pm today. And if you have not yet, we hope you consider reaffirming your support for the 4Cs and sign a membership form here.
Questions & Answers for 4Cs Members
What does this court case mean for our union? Will this destroy your union and permanently weaken the labor movement?
4Cs members are bound and determined to stick together in our union, no matter what. We’re not going to let any court case stop us from fighting for the good, union jobs our communities need.
We stand on the shoulders of public workers who fought for their union in the 60s and 70s, who faced much worse but were relentless in their efforts to join together in unions.
How many members will your union lose now? How much money will your union lose?
The power of our union comes from our members, not from money. Our money has always been dwarfed by corporate special interests. Our power is the people, and their determination to fight for their families and our communities.
I can tell you that 4Cs members are bound and determined to stick together in our union. We know from experience that we are stronger together. And we’re going to keep fighting and keep up our demand to make every job a good, union job that provides financial security for our families and strengthens our communities.
I’m confident that we will make the demand for good, union jobs and that our elected leaders will respond. We are driving a turnaround in this country that begins this year and will continue through 2020 by uniting working people to demand that elected officials do everything in their power to make it easier to join together in unions so we all have a fair shot at the middle class.
