Healthcare is at the heart of every battle unions face today. Every contract dispute and campaign is connected to health insurance: Whose going to pay what share of the premium? How much more are the co-payments and deductibles going to be? Employers are increasing the number of hours needed to work to qualify for coverage. Negotiations with the boss are the same for all of us.
Brothers and Sisters, we can’t win this at the bargaining table any longer. No social justice movement has ever advanced in the Country without strong support from the labor movement. Our job is to make healthcare for all politically possible.
