As Rank and File members of AFT 1789, we have been on a journey toward solidarity, democracy, and collective power. We have so much appreciation for all the RaF Union members who have been attending the all-RaF meetings and joining working teams. We also have appreciation for those on the Union e-board who are working to dismantle the top down model of our Union.
Together in solidarity we are working to organize open negotiations to fight for a living wage. A strong and clear RaF is how we will get a living wage, protect jobs, and secure our working conditions. At our January 14, all-RaF meeting we developed tactics for the upcoming wage negotiations (read the meeting notes) and we will continue that work this Friday, January 28 3pm - 5pm (read the Open negotiations statement).
This is our Union and we want an open process and a 40% increase in salary. Join your Union siblings and bring two colleagues to the revolution. There may even be some Billy Bragg to be enjoyed.
We are the Union!
Your rank-and-file colleagues
