Hundreds from across the country – and even from around the world – joined us for a powerful national solidarity organizing meeting and workers assembly this past weekend.
We heard updates from the RWDSU, on the ground reports from community members in Bessemer and Birmingham who’ve been working tirelessly to build solidarity there, and from many other workers, labor leaders, fighters in the Black liberation struggle, and community activists.
The message of the call was clear – the progressive movements and workers from coast to coast are inspired by the majority Black workers in Bessemer who are fighting to win the first U.S. union at Amazon, and we’re prepared to continue building the solidarity movement that’s arisen around this historic struggle!
March 20 is set as the next day of action in solidarity with Alabama Amazon workers. Please share details of actions you’re planning in your city here, or submit an endorsement on behalf of your organization.
The weekend of March 20 is also the U.N. Anti-Racism Day, with actions planned around the world. March 21 is the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. These two calls for action are being connected to one another, as we know that the fight against racism and to build worker power are inextricably linked.
With only a few weeks left until voting in Bessemer ends on March 29, and as Amazon and their union busters Morgan Lewis continue to roll out dirty trick after dirty trick, the demonstrations on March 20 will come at a consequential time. Let us know what you’re planning in your area.
In the coming days, we’ll be posting lots of updates, materials, and listing actions and endorsements to the website, so please be sure to check for updates there.
All out for March 20 in solidarity with Alabama Amazon workers & against racism and union busting!
