    Martin Luther King, Jr., Union Man
    01/17/22 - Teamsters Local 570
    Jan. 17, 2022 | EQUALITY | If Martin Luther King Jr. still lived, he’d probably tell people to join unions. King understood racial equality was inextricably linked to economics.

    We Remember… We Act...
    01/17/22 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
    On August 6, 1965 President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law, calling the day “a triumph for freedom as huge as any victory that has ever been won on any battlefield” The law came seven months after Martin Luther King launched a Southern Christian Leadership Conference campaign with the aim of pressuring Congress to pass such legislation. There is nothing more fundamental in a democracy than a right to vote. At this moment, that right – and our democracy itself – is under attack. As IBEW members we must do our part to help pass these bills that protect the fundamental rights of all Americans. Honor Dr. King’s legacy by taking action today, by clicking the title link.
