Stop National Right-to-Work
DC2 is excited to join forces with Joint Council 42 in their movement to stop National Right-to-Work. Right-to-Work For Less equals lower wages and increased work place casualties. According to the Department of Labor statistics, in states that have enacted RTW, poverty is higher and school funding is lower. Join the movement to stop RTW and take the pledge at weareonebigunion.com.
