Unions supporting May 1 march for immigrant & workers rights

The union movement in the Twin Cities has given their support for this year’s march for immigrant & workers rights on May 1st at 3:30pm at Lake & Nicollet in Minneapolis. The Minneapolis Regional Labor Federation, which brings together almost all the unions in Minneapolis, endorsed the march at their April meeting. Many individual unions are also part of the march. AFSCME Council 5 — the union of 40,000 public sector workers in Minnesota, endorsed the march at their April executive board meeting. AFSCME Local 3800 (clerical workers at the U of M) and AFSCME Local 34 (Hennepin County workers), as well as AFSCME Next Wave (AFSCME’s young workers’ caucus), are also actively supporting the march. SEIU Health Care Minnesota (the union of more than 15,000 healthcare workers in hospitals and clinics around the state) has endorsed the march, and SEIU Local 26 (the union of over 4,000 janitors and security guards) is mobilizing as well. UNITE HERE Local 17 and United Transportation Union are supporting the march. The Minnesota Nurses Association (the union of 20,000 nurses in the state) endorsed the march as well. This year, the union movement in Minnesota is truly celebrating International Workers Day, May Day. Join the unions, the immigrant rights movement, and all who believe in justice for all workers to march on May 1st, International Workers Day!

Comunicado de MORENA-MN apoyando la marcha 1ro de mayo

Sobre la marcha del 1ro de Mayo
Las reivindicaciones laborales, políticas y sociales de la clase trabajadora en esta economía globalizada, siempre serán las mismas, libertad de asociación, trato digno e igualitario, cobertura médica y acceso a programas sociales y de educación, sin dejar pasar por alto un pago digno y acorde con las ganancias de los centros de trabajo. La importancia de nuestra participación en el Día Internacional de los Trabajadores es rescatar la memoria histórica de aquellos que han ofrendado su propia vida por un futuro mejor de la clase trabajadora, rendimos homenaje y ondeamos nuestras banderas de lucha con los Martires de Chicago.
Fraternalmente,
Movimiento Regeneracion Nacional (Morena)
Por una Nueva República, Justa, Democrática e Incluyente.

Regarding May 1st march
The political, social and labor demands, of the working class in this globalized economy, will always be the same ones: freedom of association, egalitarian and dignified treatment, medical coverage and access to social programs, and programs of education, without ignoring a wage with dignity according to the profit of the working place. The importance of our participation in the International Worker’s Day is to rescue the historic memory of those who have given their own lives for a better future of the working class, we pay tribute and flutter our flags of struggle with the Martyrs of Chicago.
Sincerely,
National Regeneration Movement (MORENA in Spanish)
For a Democratic, Just, and Inclusive New Republic
