The same labor and community allies who have steadfastly supported our member caregivers at Community Health Services (CHS) have organized a series of local actions on Labor Day. The events are a way to show solidarity with striking fast food workers struggling for fairness and respect — and send a strong message to correct our nation's rigged economy:
- WHEN: Three separate events on Monday, September 4 -
< >7:00AM - demonstration at McDonald's in the North End;7:30AM - rally and marches down Albany Avenue with a stop outside the CHS main clinic at around 8:00AM; &
- 9:00AM - march to Christ Church Cathedral for a program and breakfast.
- WHERE: Action kicks off at McDonald's, located at 1303 Albany Avenue in Hartford
- HOW: Click here to RSVP to join us.
With the strong support of the Fight for $15 CT Coalition and the region’s labor movement, the medical and dental assistants at CHS have just won their first union contract. But the physicians, nurses, therapists and other providers continue their effort to move management to reach a mutual agreement that respects the vital care they provide for the community.
Supporting this action is both a way to stand with the same local workers who have stood with our members and demonstrate the need for fairness and respect for all.
Join us on Labor Day and help amplify our collective demand to put unions and all working people at the center of the national conversation about income inequality.
More to come, and in solidarity
