On May 1, join an action for international workers' solidarity

April 27, 2017

May 1st is International Worker's Day, the day we join in solidarity with our brothers and sisters around the globe to demand justice for all workers!  Here in Massachusetts, there will be May Day actions in support of immigrant workers across the Commonwealth. In a time when so many workers are facing attacks from all sides, it has never been more important to take to the streets!  If you attend a rally, be sure to take a picture of yourself and other Local 888 members participating and send to
