Dozens of NYC Unions Turn Out for Day of Solidarity with WGA East and SAG-AFTRA
Entertainment industry workers, nurses, teachers, construction and building trades workers, retail workers, communications workers—every unionized industry in NYC seemed to be out on the street Tuesday for a National Day of Solidarity in support of striking WGA and SAG-AFTRA members. The NYC event took place in front of the HBO/Amazon location in Hudson Yards, and was part of a day of actions across the country that included Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Seattle, Anchorage and more. In this “Summer of Strikes,” working Americans everywhere are fighting for fair contracts, better compensation, safe working conditions and protections from encroaching technology. Support is growing, momentum is building, and these workers are standing strong.
