Conservative donors like the Koch brothers have long strived to bleed unions dry of resources that protect workers’ rights, and now they have been rewarded. This was the latest attack on worker freedom, and it ensures increased difficulty for organized workers trying to improve their workplace.

America needs unions now more than ever. Fortunately, we have witnessed historic grassroots labor movements and teacher walkouts all across the nation recently. No matter who tries to bring us down, the Alliance will stand with labor unions to protect active and retired workers’ rights throughout the country.

We must organize, hold our elected leaders accountable, and fight back against efforts to divide us and weaken our communities.
