BCTGM International President David Durkee joined with members of BCTGM Local 1, the Chicago Federation of Labor and various allies at a rally to protest the American Legislative Exchange Council’s (ALEC’s) 40th Anniversary Meeting in Chicago. ALEC is leading conservative efforts to roll back the rights of working families.
From the Chicago Federation of Labor:
When greedy corporations are allowed to make the rules, our community suffers. Good full-time jobs are outsourced or replaced by part-time jobs at low wages while CEOs and corporations dodge their fair share of taxes. That’s why students, workers, faith leaders, retirees, environmentalists and community activists are speaking up about ALEC and shady corporate front groups like them.
