  • 5 January 2019
As a medical assistant at Planned Parenthood, Ta’Lisa Hairston urged pregnant women to take rest breaks at work, stay hydrated and, please, eat regular meals. Then she got pregnant and couldn’t follow her own advice.

Help Stop Anti-Worker Legislation in Michigan!

  • 6 December 2018

Brothers and Sisters,

This morning, Senate Republicans are taking testimony on a last minute bill in the Lame Duck session that would require workers to repeatedly vote to stay in their union. This so-called “recertification” legislation serves only one purpose: to keep unions distracted with costly recertification elections, undermining the ability of the union to represent our members under the terms negotiated under our collective bargaining process.

We must stop their efforts to fast track this legislation.
