clicks: Look Up Your CSEA ID Number
This year, it’s important to keep our Never Quit conversations going so we can keep building our union. We can take the energy we used to defeat the constitutional convention to defeat the corporate special interest groups and the wealthy people who would like nothing more than to break the backs of unions so they can profit even more. We can beat them if we continue to talk with those around us, and remind everyone why it’s so important to Never Quit on each other. We must be diligent, we must remain energized, and most of all, we must stay united together as one CSEA!
“This is not just a slap in the face to the working people Donald Trump pledged to lift up, it is a promise broken to anyone who hoped his presidency would be about raising wages, creating good jobs, and giving the forgotten man and woman a voice in their country. The ‘right-to-work’ law his administration has asked the highest court in the land to implement will drive wages down and fundamentally strip working people of the freedom to build power in numbers and negotiate a fair return on their work. “For the Solicitor General’s Office to reverse positions under the Trump administration – when they have argued in support of the Abood precedent twice in the past four years – underscores the fact that this case is a purely political attack on the freedoms of working people. ”
