Join the May Day Rally to End Income Inequality

We need you and your energy at the May Day march and rally, next Fri., May 1. May Day is the international workers’ holiday, a day of solidarity to celebrate the labor movement’s past progress and mobilize for the struggles of today, including our fight for a fair contract at CUNY. The annual march and rally in NYC will bring together union members and immigration activists in support of our shared demand for an end to income equality under the slogan, “Fight for Real Jobs, Real Wages and Real Rights.” The march will take the action to the doors of the city’s 1%, starting at the home of Walmart owner Alice Walton (60th St. between Park and Lexington Ave.) and traveling down Billionaire’s Row on Central Park South to join a rally at 58th Street Between 8th and 9th Ave. PSC members will meet at the corner of 62nd St. and Park Ave.,starting at 5:00 PM.

Please join your PSC sisters and brothers and their families and friends as we march and rally on Friday, May 1, 2015 arm-in-arm with fellow union members and community partners from across the metropolitan area.

We are part of New York’s working class. We share its problems and commit ourselves to be part of the search for mutually beneficial solutions. May Day symbolizes that commitment.

We are six years without a contract and our own low-wage workers suffer as badly from poor pay, job insecurity, inaccessible housing, inadequate health care and denial of rights on the job as any other worker in this city. And remember that our issues and interests are of a piece with those of our students and their families.

In our own interest, and in the interest of working people everywhere, join us for this important event. May Day is our day!

In solidarity,

Michael Fabricant and Jim Perlstein
