CLN ONLINE EVENT! Workers Speak Out: Public Services and the Pandemic

The pandemic’s economic freeze has cut deep into city, county and state revenues. Unless the federal government acts to fill this gap, Fall will see massive layoffs among state and local government employees and major public service cuts. The workers who staff our clinics, provide our drinking water and haul our trash are at risk of furloughs and layoffs.

As the US Senate weighs its response to this crisis, the Catholic Labor Network invites you to join us for Workers Speak Out: Public Services and the Pandemic. You’ll hear from some of the frontline workers whose lives and work remain in the balance, and their union, explaining what you can do to help.

Speakers to include:

  • Phil Cisneros, Office of the Cook County Public Guardian
  • Stephen Mittons, Illinois Department of Children and Family Services
  • Becky Levine, AFSCME (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees)
  • Clayton Sinyai, Catholic Labor Network
