Tzedek, Tzedek Tirdof: Support Workers' Rights to Safety
"Pray for the dead, fight like hell for the living." -Mother Jones
The 25 miners who lost their lives in the Upper Big Branch mining disaster call us to both prayer and activism. Support the rights of workers to organize unions. Union mines are safer than non-union mines because the union plays a role in enforcing the safety guidelines. Unfortunately, like many other workers, miners often fear losing their jobs or retaliation for joining a union. Miners and other workers need labor law reform, like the Employee Free Choice Act. Join CBST and Interfaith Worker Justice today and urge your senator to support efforts to reform the nation's labor laws so workers can join labor unions without fear and harassment.
