Sara Nelson on the Future of Flight Attendants and Labor

When Sara Nelson speaks, she does so for 50,000 flight attendants. She is the international president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), representing workers who have been at the very forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic. The union built a reputation for standing up to Trump, refusing to work on flights facilitating immigrant family separation, and threatening a general strike in response to the 2019 federal government shutdown. Now, in an era of successful strikes by teachers and autoworkers, Nelson is looking to build on those victories to grow a stronger labor movement in America.

Starbucks Workers on the Move Nationwide With Strikes and Other Direct Actions – Union, YES!

SBWorkersUnited

Repost from @sbworkersunitedchicago and @chris.organizer

Today, workers are using their rights to stand up to @starbucks union-busting. Across the country, @starbucks is cutting workers’ hours yet demanding the same productivity and profits at our stores. They are cutting workers’ hours DELIBERATELY as a union-busting tactic, and making it so that workers can’t qualify for benefits like healthcare. We are understaffed and overworked but we are FIGHTING BACK!

From Madison to Chicago to Columbus, workers are standing up and fighting BACK against @starbucks union-busting. #unionbusting #starbucks

Abortion rights are labor rights are human rights and we will fight for our rights inside and outside of the workplace!

Fond du Lac, July 10, 2022: Reproductive Rights Rally!

Event: https://fb.me/e/2wRMMlgKD

Reproductive justice and bodily autonomy are human rights. The overturn of Roe v. Wade sent the status of those rights in Wisconsin all the way back to 1849, and our state legislature is refusing to act. We cannot stay silent when freedom is on the line for women, girls, and our transgender siblings.

Join us at 3 pm on Sunday, July 10, 2022 at the parking lot on the corner of Johnson and Main Streets. Bring your voices, your signs, and yourselves to help us show our community that we will not go back.

Cold water will be provided for everyone.

Please share widely and invite your friends!

Milwaukee, August 20, 2022: Trump is a Racist Tool of the Rich and an Enemy of All Workers! – Rally and March

Event: https://fb.me/e/2DbEm1AyK

Trump and a group of racist and anti-worker reactionaries will be coming to Milwaukee on the morning of August 20 bright and early, from 8:15 a.m. until 5 p.m. We must be ready to meet him and his cohorts and let them know that Trumpism is not welcome here!

Location and other details to be determined! Stay tuned.

Note: Trump’s appearance (to attempt to recruit a racist, anti-worker base) is a part of the white supremacist and anti-worker “American Freedom Tour” which will “feature” capitalist bankers, corporate thieves and Pentagon war criminals. Political servants of the rich such as cops and politicians that have waged war on workers and the oppressed for decades are also planning on taking part in the “tour.” https://americanfreedomtour.com/events/251

Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault Statement on Wisconsin Supreme Court Decision Regarding Chrystul Kizer

Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault

July 6, 2022

WCASA is pleased with the Supreme Court’s decision today in Chrystul Kizer’s case. While this decision is extremely important to her defense, we continue to advocate for the charges against Chrystul to be dismissed. Too often, survivors of violence – especially girls and women of color – are criminalized for defending themselves. We continue to stand in solidarity with Chrystul and all survivors of sexual violence.

WCASA is in solidarity with local organizers in the Milwaukee community in advocating for the release of Chrystul Kizer. Chrystul is a sex trafficking victim who has experienced and is living with the impacts of trauma. We ask you join us in the actions to support Chrystul provided by the #FreeChrystul Defense Committee. Free Chrystul Kizer Our letter outlining these actions can be found at http://ow.ly/o4D130o3ZC9
