    Rally for Wages and Fairness

    Chapman Square

    It is so important that YOU, your coworkers, and your family join us in the park on Wednesday, July 19th at 4:30 pm for a rally. If we can get 1000 DCTU members in the park, we can push hard on the City the next day to settle this contract!!

    We're union members, so we can't go to the boss to ask for a raise, that's just not the way it works in a union shop. Showing up for this rally, taking an hour or two off work, coming in if it's your day off, is the union equivalent of having a meeting with your boss to ask for a raise.

    This is the first time in a long time there has been money on the table, but we have to fight for it! They same few voices at the table week after week won't convince the City. Swarming outside the offices of BHR will prove you actually care and are NOT content with your current lot.

    There is a reason the City has kept a lid on their non-rep class-comp results. Whatever we don't pry from their fingers will probably just go to non-rep and management raises.

    Come lift your voices and fight to be recognized at the employees of choice you really are!

    CANCELLED: Stand up against police targeting

    Activists are always being targeted by the police, we need to put a end to people constantly being arrested for expressing their first amendment rights!

    Marching in the streets and blocking traffic for a couple of minutes should NOT be a crime, we need a PPB That protects the people not a PPB that arrests a morning family protesting a murder committed by Officer Andrew Hearst.

    Just the other day, Standard Schaefer (a Portland activist) was drinking coffee in a Starbucks with his family where he was recognized and arrested, he was accused of second-degree robbery and coercion.. because during a recent Quanice Hayes protest, someone was assaulting a woman and stan came in to help, he ended up knocking the glasses off the guy... which is robbery? Plus the video they had as evidence showed a person assaulting someone and then stan, but they only arrested the known activist. They are not going after the person who assaulted two people but they are trying to put felony charges on the person who protected everyone from the person who was assaulting people. This is just one example of how the PPB targets protesters Like the UN says "Americans right to protest is in grave danger"

    So come stand in solidarity with everyone who is constantly arrested and targeting for protesting, come stand in solidarity against the PPB.
