Re: UWUA Local 1-2 Rally – Tuesday, July 17
8,500 members of Local 1-2 of the Utility Workers Union of America who were locked out by Con Edison need your help. On Tuesday, July 17 at 4:30pm locked out workers and their allies will assemble at their picket line at 4 Irving Place, New York, NY and march to Union Square for a massive rally which is scheduled to begin at 5:30 pm.
On behalf of the locked out workers and their families, I am asking that our affiliates mobilize their members to participate in the march and rally, and demonstrate their unwavering solidarity. Con Edison needs to be sent a clear message that they have not only taken on Local 1-2, but the entire Labor Movement and all New Yorkers.
