Join IEA on February 24 in Chicago!
On February 24, 2018, working people from across the state of Illinois are coming together to stand up for our rights and freedom to organize and participate in our unions. This day of action is a part of a nationally coordinated effort, to show our unity in the face of the Supreme Court as it hears arguments over a case called Janus v. AFSCME that threatens to strip Americans of our freedom to come together in strong unions, build power, and have a voice at work. We need to stand up for our unions. Unions make sure every child has access to a high-quality public education. Unions built the middle class. Unions make our country strong. Learn more about StrongerUnitedIllinois.org.
Join us in Chicago as we stand in solidarity and unison with others through the Illinois Working Together coalition. Come help us protect our right to organize. Meet and unify with members of other unions.
This page will be updated with more logistical information as more information is available.
