You've got legal rights at work, but they're in danger.

You’ve got the right to fight for fair wages and to join a union. You’ve got the right to discuss workplace conditions without fear of retribution on Facebook, over Twitter or using other online forums. You’ve got the right to get your job back if you are unlawfully fired.

But those rights, already under attack, will disappear entirely if radicals in Congress have their way.

This week the House of Representatives will vote on HR 1120, a bill that will prevent the National Labor Relations Board from enforcing labor laws. It’s an unprecedented threat to your rights on the job.

Speak up to protect your ability to stand up for yourself at work -- tell your Representative to vote against HR 1120.

It’s hard to imagine – Congress ordering a federal agency to stop enforcing the law.

This bill is part of a systematic attack on working people by corporations and the politicians who carry out the corporate agenda. Barriers to voting. Silent filibusters to prevent bills from passing even when they have majority support. And now this – a bill that would roll back the clock, allowing employers to ignore labor law and collective bargaining agreements and leaving workers with no way to fight back against injustices at work.

This bill is so extreme that even some members of Congress who normally vote with the Republican majority against workers are considering voting against it. In order to win, we need for you to contact your member of Congress today to say that we’ve had enough of these attacks.

Speak out against HR 1120 now: http://action.cwa-union.org/c/1372/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=6137

In Unity,

These fools just never give up. Insane bill after insane bill. At least this one isn't targeting women, it is targeting all of us. But for the 1% who own us, and the republican party.

Everything goes in cycles.
Unions are up; unions are down.
It's only when the our lunatic legislators push too hard, AGAINST, fairness in the work place, that unions start their upward climb.
