Vermonters Rallying to support Occupying Wall Street on October 15th

Wall Street tanked our economy. We now have record job losses, home foreclosures, and much more. They got bailed out, while we got left out.  That’s why we support the brave people Occupying Wall Street.  This is our time to fight for good family supporting jobs and make Wall Street pay their fair share. Rally with us October 15th in Burlington, Brattleboro, Montpelier, or Rutland.


Vermont Needs to Stand and be Heard Against the Preibus Attack

 The United Professions AFT VT,  VT NEA, Teamsters, VT Workers Center, and VSEA ask you to stand with us to protest the Vermont speaking appearance of Reince Preibus,  the widely recognized architect of the assault on workers in Wisconsin.  We are disappointed by the invitation to him and we intend to send a strong message that we will not sit idle, as he spreads his anti-worker, anti-middle class, anti-equality ideology to Vermont. We will be meeting  Wednesday, April 13th at Church & Pearl St at 5:15 PM, departing at 5:30 PM, marching down Pearl Street to the Hilton Hotel on Battery Street.
