Hosted by Milwaukee Area Labor Council
200 E Wells Street, Milwaukee City Hall, 6 P.M.
Rally and press conference to condemn city contractor displaying KKK logo
Monday December 11th at 6:00pm
In front of Milwaukee City Hall
Sponsored by the Young Workers Committee of the Milwaukee Area Labor Council, AFL-CIO, Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, The Milwaukee Dr. Martin Luther King Justice Coalition, Citizen Action of Wisconsin, Young People’s Resistance Committee.
Organized labor groups will gather Monday to condemn the contractor working for American Sewer Service who displayed the KKK logo on 25th and Wells on Friday while working on a project for the City of Milwaukee.
No worker can be both a unionist and a fascist, white supremacists are the enemy of organized labor and the entire multinational working class. The KKK is a white supremacist terrorist group responsible for killing African Americans, LBGTQ people, trade unionists, and others.
Unions stand for economic and social justice, and we condemn and actively fight against white supremacy and fascism in the workplace and society.
We call on the City of Milwaukee to demand accountability from American Sewer Service for the actions of their employees, and if standards are not met to cancel City contracts with the company. And we call on union brothers and sisters to build the trade union movement to smash bigotry, fascism, and economic and racial oppression.
