Massive Union Presence Expected at March on Washington

AFT and AFT-Maryland invite members to participate in the 2013 March on Washington, Saturday, August 24th. The nation’s unions will be represented en mass at the August 24th March on Washington.  As in 1963, the nation’s workers will emphasize the need for jobs, justice, and freedom.  Marchers will gather at the Lincoln Memorial on the National Mall and proceed to the new monument that honors Martin Luther King, Jr., the slain civil rights leader who galvanized marchers in 1963 with his “I Have A Dream” speech.

AFTMD Locals Show Support for South Korean Education Workers

AFT-Maryland local unions stand in support of South Korean education support workers who are an integral part of students' educational programs yet have no job stability or fair wages based on experience.

Staff and members of the City Union of Baltimore (CUB, Local 800, pictured to the right), Maryland Professional Employees Council (MPEC, Local 6197) and Maryland Classified Employees Association (MCEA, Local 1935) had their photos taken with supportive signs, collected by AFT to be shared with the workers in the effort in South Korea.
