On Tuesday, December 13 APWU members rallied with unions around the country to support rail workers and show solidarity for their fight to win paid sick leave.  At the rally near the Capitol, Dena Briscoe,  President of the Nation’s Capital/Southern Maryland Area Local (NCSMAL) and President Nannette Corley of the Montgomery County Area Local joined APWU headquarters officers and staff. In an open call for speakers, President Mark Dimondstein jumped on the bullhorn to voice postal workers’ support at the rally.

“It is unconscionable for any worker to have so little control over work schedules and receive no paid sick leave,” said President Dimondstein. “The struggle for dignity and respect for railroad workers and their justified quest for a better quality of life will undoubtedly continue and the APWU stands with these workers and all workers seeking equity and justice.”

In Salt Lake City, President Russ Franklin, Vice President Jim Bean, and Director of Industrial Relations Norm Barringer trekked to the state capital in the cold and snow to show their support.
Members were proud to show our solidarity for our union family at these rallies. We know that every worker deserves dignity and respect – and paid sick leave is one of the most fundamental rights workers deserve.
