CTUL says
We know the Twin Cities couldn't run without the labor of low wage workers and immigrants, however, workers and immigrants striking on May 1st may face retaliation from their employers for organizing in the workplace. Let's build a strong network of people to stand in solidarity against retaliation in the Twin Cities!

Join us at an event put on by Convergence Twin Cities on April 27th to learn "how we are pushing back right now and how we can build long-term strategies for advancing worker and immigrant rights in the Twin Cities and beyond."

Full event description below. The first hour will be panel conversations and the second hour will be small group trainings- one of which will be about how to get involved in the anti-retaliation network for May 1! We hope to see you there.

You can also find more information on the form below and sign-up to be a part of a rapid response text network to stand against retaliation for organizing in the workplace.
