UE Members
Among 600
At Jobs with Justice Conference

Jobs with Justice rally ...
... and UE members at JwJ conference

UE members were among the more than 600 delegates to the national Jobs with Justice conference in Louisville, Ky. Feb. 26-28. Many are calling this the most energetic and successful Jobs with Justice national conference yet; a large number of student activists joined with union members and delegates from churches and community coalitions in demanding union rights and a living wage for all workers.

At left (top), a rally outside the corporate headquarters of Kentucky Fried Chicken called on the restaurant chain to persuade poultry processor Tyson Foods to provide better wages and working conditions for its employees.

Delegates thrilled to Mexican labor leader Bertha Lujan’s call for cross-border solidarity; (in the lower photo), Lujan poses with the UE delegation.
