We Rise: February 26


In an act of solidarity, please join union members nationwide on Monday, February 26 to Purple Up on Oral Arguments Day!

Join fellow workers across the nation to rise up against rich and powerful corporations who are using the Supreme Court and Janus v. AFSCME to divide us from our coworkers and limit the power in numbers we have together in our union. Learn more about the case here.

No court decision will hold us back!
