Labor Marshals Nationwide Show of Force as Supreme Court Hears Janus v. AFSCME

On Saturday, February 24, Diana Limongi, a New York City clerical worker, will tell thousands of people in Manhattan’s Foley Square about the difficulty of caring for a newborn without paid family leave.

And on Monday, assistant teacher Sherry Nickerson will rally for unions with her sister and other demonstrators in downtown Chicago, while union leader Peter MacKinnon coordinates walkouts across Massachusetts.

They are among the tens of thousands of workers expected to participate in a nationwide show of force by the labor movement, timed to take place on the eve of an important Supreme Court case. A statement from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) calls it “largest national day of public sector workplace actions to ever take place in America.”
