The public sector is broad, including but not limited to, public school employees and students, city public works employees such as in sanitation or street services, maintenance workers, patient care givers, public administration workers, postal service workers, veterans hospital care providers, police and firefighters, and so on.
Public service workers at every level and public services for every community are under attack – through mass layoffs closing vital services, pensions being slashed, years without wage increases, severe under-staffing, and draconian budget cuts.
This meeting is sponsored by UE Local 150, Durham Association of Educators, NALC Branch 382, Durham NAACP, and NC Peace Action.
