Unions vs. Taxpayers

Since Education Minnesota doesn’t have a stranglehold over our legislators anymore they seem to be getting nervous!  Here is their latest email alert;

Educators: Stand up for your rights on April 4!

Calling all educators! You’re needed to stand up for your rights and the middle class. We need a large presence of Education Minnesota members at the Capitol for the We Are One rally on April 4.  Minnesotans will march to the state Capitol April 4 to stand up for jobs, a fair budget and worker rights as part of the nationwide We Are One rally.  After seeing the power grab in Wisconsin and here at our own Legislature, it’s time for Education Minnesota members to speak out! Here are three things you can do:

1. Join us in St. Paul for the We Are One rally; details are below, including free busing to the Capitol.

2. Wear blue on April 4 to show your solidarity for public education.

3. If you can’t come to St. Paul, organize your own local union rally, either before or after school, districtwide or in your building.

4. Have members sign our Solidarity pledge at your rally. And send us a photo of your rally for possible use on our Facebook page!

April 4 rally details

5 p.m. — Meet at Cathedral Park at the intersection of Marshall Avenue and John Ireland Boulevard, St. Paul.

5:15 p.m. — March for the middle class down John Ireland Boulevard to the Capitol.

6 p.m. — Program and music at the Capitol

Wear blue to show your solidarity for public education! You’ll find more information on our website.

Avoid traffic and parking — ride our free buses to the Capitol!

Because parking near the Capitol is limited, Education Minnesota is sponsoring a bus from each of the following four locations for the April 4 rally. Registration is free, but limited to Education Minnesota active and retired members and their immediate family, and first-come, first-served. Please sign up before Thursday:

• Blaine: Northtown Mall

• Bloomington: Mall of America

• Burnsville: Burnsville Center

• Maplewood: Maplewood Mall

Buses will leave each location at 4 p.m. sharp and drop riders off at Cathedral Park. Buses will leave at approximately 7 p.m. after the rally from in front of the Capitol on Martin Luther King Boulevard.

Yes everyone….wear blue to show your support for educators and the Democratic Party.  Since federal workers don’t have collective bargaining “rights” we are still waiting for the Obama protests to begin!  It’s funny to listen Education Minnesota act like their the defenders of the workers, and middle class, and acting like the government actually creates jobs…..and remember all these people care about is the children!
