Supporters of Wisconsin unions to speak out at the General Assembly

The new week gets off to a fast start today. According to a statement released over the weekend:

“Leaders from the Labor, Faith and Civil Rights Community will hold a News Conference in front of the State Legislature, 16 W. Jones Street, at noon on Monday, February 21.  They will express their solidarity with Wisconsin public workers whose unionization and collective bargaining rights are under attack and to call for repeal of the 1959 N.C. law that banned collective bargaining here.

Immediately following the News Conference, they will deliver to General Assembly leaders the International Labor Organization’s ruling that North Carolina’s prohibition against public employees collective bargaining rights violates international labor law.

The News Conference begins at noon at 16 W. Jones Street, Raleigh, Monday, February 21st. “
