D'Agostino defends the right to organize during labor rally

February 27, 2018

State Rep. Mike D’Agostino joined Democratic leaders and local union workers Feb. 26 to defend the right to collectively bargain.

Monday’s rally comes as the U.S. Supreme Court decides on a legal case that is challenging government union dues.

“Understand that what is happening in the Supreme Court today is a battle in a much larger war. We live in a time right now when there is more concentrated wealth and power in the hands of a few individuals and corporations than ever before. The only institutional check left on that power is organized labor,” D’Agostino said. "It is no surprise that those with that concentrated wealth and power want to do everything they can to undermine the only check left on it."
