I am writing to invite you to ATU Local 689’s rally on Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 8:30 a.m. The rally will occur at WMATA Headquarters (Jackson Graham Building), which is located at 600 5th Street, NW. We are rallying to address issues that not only impact our members, but that also impact other labor union members and the riding public, as well. We see ourselves as part of the larger labor movement and we stand in solidarity with union members across the nation. More specifically, issues that we plan to highlight are the need to preserve final and binding arbitration, concern over insufficient transit funding, issues of inadequate safety for employees and passengers, and attacks on collective bargaining rights.
Please join our union members, as well as community members, other labor union members, and the riding public in making our collective issues known. If you plan to attend and you want to address the crowd, please let me know by responding to this email. Also, please encourage all of your members to support us at our rally.
Thank you and I hope to see you at our rally!
