Were you too young to go to Washington when Martin Luther King gave this “I Have a Dream” speech? Did you miss 1981 Solidarity Day, when hundreds of thousands of union members went to Washington to demand jobs and their rights? Don’t miss ONE NATION DAY, when hundreds of unions and Civil Rights groups are going to Washington to demand the change we voted for.

CWA told Lampitt not to place artificial caps on collective bargaining, and not to dismantle the worker protections in Civil Service in New Jersey.
