Railroad Workers and Friends:
Please come on out for an open air demonstration to protest the latest anti-union and anti-worker antics of the White House and Congress. Rail workers have been fighting for a decent contract that includes scheduled time off and sick leave provisions. The majority have rejected a contract, and now the government is attempting to mandate it through legislation. This is not acceptable!
President Biden is visiting JFK Library in Boston Friday for an event. A number of local groups are coming together to show him that we are not happy with this behavior!!

Day & Time: Friday 12/2 Picket starting 11:30am, Rally starting 12pm. Estimated end is 1:30pm.

Location: Biden will be visiting JFK Library for an event. The picket and rally will be held at the corner of University Drive North and Colombia Point, on the parking lot side. 

Transit:  Take the Red Line to the JFK/UMASS stop and follow signage to the ground level bus shelters. Catch the Paul Revere Route 1 shuttle bus, provided by the University of Massachusetts Boston free of charge. Exit the bus at the Kennedy/Archives stop located at the end of the JFK Library and Museum’s parking lot. Visitors can track shuttle buses at

Parking: May be limited or blocked off for security purposes. 

Hope to see you all there!!

Calling All Working Railroaders and Their Allies: Sign the Open Letter to Congress and the President Today! Railroad Workers United invites all working railroaders and their supporters to sign the following Open Letter to Congress and the President urging them to rescind and reject President Biden’s proposal for Congress to force rail carriers and rail workers to accept a tentative contract agreement that has been rejected by four out of the twelve railroad unions. These four unions represent the majority of workers on the nation’s freight railroads, and by pushing through a tentative agreement that a majority of rank-and-file union members have declared completely unsatisfactory, President Biden and Congress would be overriding the democratically expressed will of railroad workers. While the tentative agreement provides significant wage increases, workers on the railroads have stated clearly and repeatedly that their fight is not just about money. Railroad workers are fighting for the right to live—and have a life—outside of work.Read and sign the full letter at the link below. This is one additional and important way to raise your voice in support of the dignity and humanity of railroad workers and all workers, everywhere.
