UAW employees and officers will be wearing red every Wednesday to show their support for public sector workers under attack by Republican governors and lawmakers who are pushing policies that will wreck America’s middle class.

Starting March 9, Wednesdays are ‘Solidarity Day’ at Solidarity House, the UAW’s headquarters in Detroit and at other UAW offices throughout the nation. The union is also encouraging its members to wear red on Wednesdays to show solidarity with public sector workers.

“We're asking staff, clerical employees, and members to wear red as a weekly symbol of what we’re fighting for: the right to exercise one’s First Amendment right to freely associate and join a union as well as the right to collectively bargain with public employers,” UAW President Bob King said.
