Tell DC City Council - support workers in the Budget Support Act!
While the coronavirus pandemic has hit communities like ours incredibly hard, it is irresponsible for local government to balance budgets on the backs of essential workers. the District of Columbia City Council is voting on a Budget Support Act that as of right now includes no language honoring pay increases for AFSCME workers in the District.
Instead of honoring our essential workers who have kept the city moving during this pandemic - keeping our streets clean, our busses running, our garbage off the streets - the Act proposed by DC City Council will not only roll back wage increases that were promised, but also endanger your right to collectively bargain.
Send a letter to your councilmember today telling them to vote protect our hard won wage increases and to protect our right to collectively bargain. Click HERE to get to the petition.
