Updates from Labor Committee

Labor was on the move this past month of May. On May 16th, we joined the historic 20,000 teachers' rally in Raleigh to demand the General Assembly reverse its defunding of our public schools (while removing funds from public schools to fund private schools and vouchers), provide the classroom resources our students deserve and pay teachers and staff the salaries that respect their critical positions in our schools.
