A Show of Worker Unity in Philly

Yesterday was a BIG day for workers in Philly!

On the first day of the City Council’s session, we were out in full force to win new anti-retaliation protections for all Philly workers and fully fund the Office of Worker Protections in 2024!

Dozens of workers and supporters along with 12 local organizations showed up at City Hall to talk to Councilmembers about the challenges they face on the job and in enforcing their hard-fought rights. 9 out of 17 Councilmembers signed our pro-worker pledge, and we’ll go back soon to secure even more signers!

Thank you to the 12 partner organizations who came out yesterday, including the Philly Black Worker ProjectEl Comité de Trabajadores de Restaurantes215 People’s AllianceCommunity Legal Services of PhiladelphiaVietlead, JuntosPhiladelphia DSAHand in HandOne PennsylvaniaROC PA, and the Philadelphia Council AFL-CIO.

This is a big year for domestic workers, and we’ll be in touch soon with ways you can take action to win worker power!

In solidarity,
