As the lockout of Baltimore Symphony Orchestra musicians enters its second week – and support pours in from around the country -- picketing continues every morning this week, from 7:30 to 10:30 am. There are also two noontime labor rallies in downtown DC today.
The first is “No Vote Until NAFTA 2.0 is Fixed!” on Capitol Hill; Trump wants a vote on the revised NAFTA as soon as possible, but if enacted as-is, the deal would lock in high medicine prices and fail to stop NAFTA’s ongoing outsourcing of jobs and pollution.
Also at noon, in Triangle Park at 20th and Virginia, NW, federal workers will rally to “Stop the Merger of OPM and GSA!” Trump’s plan to dismantle the Office of Personnel Management and transfer critical functions to the White House would undermine the civil service as a federal workforce that works for the American people.
