CTA is asking that we all show our unity in support for public schools on Monday, May 1st. SGTA kindly asks that you gather with your fellow peers, take a picture before or after school with your shirts and hats and send it to your rep so we can post on our Facebook page. We would like to show our support for students and their rights to a fair and appropriate education.
Why May 1st?
May 1st has been historically linked to international workers’ rights. It started, May 1 1886 when the U.S. Federation of Organized Trade and Labor Unions – which included immigrant workers from all over – ruled that an 8-hour work day, would be a full and legal work day. More recently, May Day has served as a national day of action to raise awareness about immigration rights and the need to keep families together as they fight for a better life.
Attached are more reasons to join the cause. Thank you for your time.
