Public Workers Under Attack,
Stop Services and Education
From Closing Down!
June 25 (Thursday) 2009 7:00 PM
Richmond Main Public Library
325 Civic Center Plaza Richmond, CA 94804
Public workers face the greatest attack from Sacramento (Democrats & Republicans) from
big business and the corporate controlled media in the history of California with pay cuts,
mass lay-offs and attack on our pensions. The time for united collective action is critical.
Concessions such as furloughs, paycuts and retirement cutbacks will not solve the attack on
public workers. California is one of the riches places in the world yet the poor and working
people are paying the cost for this economic crisis. This meeting is to discuss an agenda
to go on the offensive to save public services and education by using the collective power
of the 1.5 million public workers in California. No union chapter or union local can fight
alone. This systemic crisis cannot be allowed to pit worker against worker and one public
sector against another for the crumbs from the table. We also cannot afford to wait until
another ballot initiative in November of this year if we are to save public services. The
speakers will include members from Richmond Federation of Teachers, SEIU, AFSCME
Local 444 and CAPS which represents state workers.
The United Public Workers For Action http://www.upwa.info was formed to unite all public
workers in California and organize statewide action of all public workers and their unions
on the jobs and in the community. California cannot function without public workers and it
is time that the people who own California understand that.
Please join us in this important meeting and let’s organize together to survive these at-
tacks.
