‘Workers Assembly’ demand fair wages in Baltimore

Community, union and student activists convened Saturday in Baltimore City to hold a “Workers Assembly.” The event was held at Sharp’s Hall on York Road, just behind the Govan’s Presbyterian Church.

The agenda included discussing the ongoing fight for a “Livable Minimum Wage,” and to launch “Spring Marching Plans” for Baltimore and the region. Also on the agenda was the issue of justice for the BWI SuperShuttle drivers, who work for Veolia; and how to combat “union-busting” from Boston to Baltimore to South Carolina to Tennessee.

Representatives came to the assembly from North Carolina, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and New York. The sponsor was the “We Deserve Better” Workers Assembly. Social Justice activist, Sharon Black, was one of the organizers of the meeting.
