LABOR SOLIDARITY MONTH!
Opportunities to support workers fighting for better conditions and pay throughout July!
The first one is July 9th- it’s our day of solidarity with the Clarksville Starbucks workers who are facing retaliation from management after their unionization efforts. Workers are asking for people to make orders under the name Solidarity and leave a big tip. Join us at 1231 Veterans Parkway in Clarksville IN any time 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
On July 11th we'll be meeting at 12 p.m. at the Smoketown Collective at 900 S. Shelby St in Louisville to bring supplies and solidarity to striking workers at FireKing in New Albany.
Finally, we'll also have a pair of canvasses to support the workers organizing at Heine Brothers! More details will be posted soon.
ABOUT THE LABOR COMMITTEE
Louisville DSA has a standing labor committee to help organize workers into a class that can fight and beat the boss. As socialists, we believe that workers produce all wealth and are entitled to the full fruits of their labor. As such, we believe organizing labor is important both in principle and strategically. As workers produce all wealth, strikes hit at the heart of capitalist profit and power. This committee helps create militant unions that can go on and win strikes through rank-and-file organizing and organizing the unorganized in the greater Louisville area.
The labor movement had been in decline over the last forty years, but recent strike waves and unionization victories show workers are ready and able to fight back. Louisville DSA believes the best way to rebuild the labor movement is by helping workers develop militant unions that are willing to strike for better wages and working conditions.
