Power to the WORKERS!!!
After trying for ten months to reach a fair contract, nearly 40,000 Verizon workers from Massachusetts to Virginia will go on strike at 6 a.m. on Wednesday, April 13 if a fair agreement is not reached by then. The Verizon strike will be by far the largest work stoppage in the country in recent years.
“We’re standing up for working families and standing up to Verizon’s corporate greed,” said CWA District 1 Vice President Dennis Trainor. “If a hugely profitable corporation like Verizon can destroy the good family-supporting jobs of highly skilled workers, then no worker in America will be safe from this corporate race to the bottom.”
Even though Verizon made $39 billion in profits over the last three years — and $1.8 billion a month in profits over the first three months of 2016 — the company wants to gut…

POWER to the PEOPLE
The number of deaths of our fellow brothers and sisters by police officers keep rising. According to the Washington Post that number across America reaches a high of 986 killings in 2015 alone. “Police killed blacks at three times the rate of whites [..] And although black men represent 6 percent of the U.S. population, they made up nearly 40 percent of those who were killed while unarmed.”
Something is wrong in America, and we see too often here at home. Law enforcement offices and officials target our community at disproportionate rates, whether it is MPD, ICE, or corrupt folks in office, someone threatens our livelihood.
The Student Union Movement invites you all to attend this informational workshop to learn how to defend ourselves when dealing with law enforcement and more about how institutional oppression affects people of…
