Four buses of Tucson unionists go State Capitol for Day of Actionby Pamela Powers Hannley on Mar. 01, 2012, under Arizona, Arizona Legislature, jobs, organizing, Politics, Tucson, unions
When I originally reported on the AFL-CIO Day of Action, I said four bus-loads of unionists were going to the Capitol to lobby Legislators and demonstrate against the anti-labor bills. Correction: that’s four buses just from Tucson. Additional bus-loads will be arriving from other Arizona cities.
As they loaded the buses, one participant told me that two years ago, 30 unionists went to the Arizona Legislature on the Day of Action. Last year, there were two buses of unionists. This year with six anti-worker bills in the Arizona Legislature, there are four bus-loads just from Tucson going to the capitol.
Maybe today will be Arizona’s “Wisconsin moment.”
