We will be holding a (socially distanced) press conference and public speak-out at the Dirksen Federal Building, noon on Monday, June 8, 2020.

Workers will be announcing legal charges against the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) for breaking worker’s First Amendment rights to freedom of speech. CTA management illegally broke up workers meetings discussing the safety and ethics of driving “police shuttles” which are being used to transport police and National Guard to demonstrations opposing the racist police murder of George Floyd.

Please join us to defend workers’ rights to freedom of speech and right to oppose police murder. Front-line workers, such as nurses, grocery, big box, postal and delivery workers are especially welcome to speak out with us.
