Today, workers and unions across the country turned out for a national day of action in support of abortion. Representing UFT, HCT, Starbucks Workers United, RWDSU, NYSNA, and others, workers marched in protests across the country carrying signs of reproductive rights and cross-industry solidarity.  

We need a large, mass movement of the working class to rise up for the right to free, safe abortion on the demand. These groups of organized workers are just the beginning.
