WBAI's BUILDING BRIDGES PRESENTS LIVE COVERAGE
OF MASS RALLY OF PUBLIC WORKERS AGAINST THE CUTS!
AT CITY HALL FROM 3-6 PM ON WED. , JUNE 16, 2010,
A coalition of municipal labor unions, are fed up and can’t take it anymore
– they’re saying that job losses and service cuts will permanently alter the
lives of City workers and the city’s residents. The Mayor is sharpening his
carving knife and on the chopping block are thousands of civil service jobs,
educators, transit workers, public health and social service workers, and
library workers. The loss of these jobs mean we are all faced with reduced
transit services, education, healthcare, and fire services, and the myriad
services provided by public sector workers. And, at the same time the
city hemorrhages public sector jobs and services, it aggressively advances
the privatization of public sector jobs and the services and resources they
provide. Hey, it’s an all out attack on public sector unions and the workers,
and benefits those unions fought for. So in the fight for its life, public workers
and their unions say hell no to pro-corporate policies that serve the wealthy
at the expense of the majority of New Yorkers.
WBAI's broadcast will include the voices from the demonstration as they
take to the streets in protest, special interviews, and analysis of recent
budget decisions by Bloomberg, the City Council, Paterson, and the State
Legislature in Albany.
Building Bridges regularly airs over WBAI, Mondays from 7 – 8 pm.
