It's Time for Action in Texas

The pace of activities across the world is beyond anybody's ability to participate in all of them, or even to know about all of them, and certainly not to be able to shake a stick at them! National AFL-CIO seems to be calling for a "national day of action" about every two weeks. The next one is March 20. Other national organizations are doing the same, and local organizations are calling for even more.

In Texas, the best way to keep up is to get the free news service from the Texas AFL-CIO by e-mail. Write ed@texasaflcio to get on the list.

The March 11 blog catches everybody up on Texas Legislature activities concerning working families. It also announces postal worker National Day of Action, to save Saturday delivery, March 24 with these activities scheduled so far:
