Legal Services Staff Association Holds One-Day Strike
With management's best and final contract offer nearly due and a number of key demands still unresolved, members of the Legal Service Staff Association/NOLSW UAW Loacal 2320), the unionized staff of Legal Services NYC, turned up the pressure the best way they know how to: by withholding their labor.
LSSA rank & file staged a one-day strike on Wednesday to demand a fair and equitable contract. Members picketed outside the Tribeca apartment of LSNYC's executive director, demanding pay equity for the lowest paid staff, better raises for all, and stronger layoff protections. The picket reassembled online in the afternoon, when members joined an open bargaining session, using visual media, including profile pictures and Zoom backgrounds, to demand a "Fair Contract Now."
