Like the weather, the activity at Warehouse Workers for Justice has been heating up throughout June. In addition to our usual work and most recent action — Our Prime Day Order: Justice From Amazon! Community Rally — we’ve continued to expand our work in organizing workers and community members, developing community programs, and strengthening connections with other organizations.
Will County Community Meeting
On Tuesday, June 15, 2021, Warehouse Workers for Justice met with Joliet community members to discuss tenant rights, worker’s rights, available community resources, and collective solutions for issues that community members have been facing.
Workers Can’t Wait! June 15th National Day of Action
For over a year, essential workers have been waiting for the government to issue protections that would keep them safe in the face of the pandemic. Workers and advocates around the country organized a National Day of Action on Tuesday, June 15th to demand that President Biden issue a strong Emergency Temporary Standard that covers ALL workers NOW! Warehouse Workers for Justice joined the HEAL Food Alliance — as well as other workers, organizers, and advocates — in speaking out.
Warehouse Workers joined several other community-based organizations in supporting and celebrating Cook County Department of Public Health’s Youth Day. On Saturday, June 19, 2021, the community celebrated summer with a cookout and a free Six Flags Great America amusement park ticket to anyone who got vaccinated. The event featured music and community.
