No to right-to-work (for less) in Pennsylvania!
Mar. 26, 2013 | Wisconsin. Michigan, Indiana. Now Pennsylvania?! NO!

A Day of Action has been called for Saturday, April 20th, at 9 am at the Coyle Library in Chambersburg, PA. We need all Local 992 members to join in this day of solidarity with our brothers and sisters from other Teamster locals and the UAW, IBEW, Steelworkers, SEIU and other unions. We must hit the streets to keep Pennsylvania a union-powered state. Please read this appeal from Secretary-Treasurer Tom Krause. And take a look at this fact sheet on why right to work is wrong for everyone. See you April 20th!
