At Jobs with Justice 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.
