On April 8, one hundred supporters of the Employee Free Choice Act rallied out side of Senator Arlen Specter's office in downtown Philadelphia.
Philadelphia area workers will hold a rally on Wednesday, April 8th, 2009 at 3:00 p.m. at 5th and Market Streets, next to the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia in support of Congressional passage of the Employee Free Choice Act. The rally will include a speakers program by Labor Leaders and workers followed by the delivery of hundreds of signed letters and post cards from workers asking Senator Arlen Specter to reconsider his recently announced decision to oppose the legislation.
Thomas Robinson, Chairman of the POWR campaign was also a speaker. The media coordinator of the event didn't get our rally mentioned in a single media outlet. Pretty bad job on our part...
