Web News Article #: 

05/05/2017 - APWU members were part of the thousands marching and rallying on May Day, the International Day of Workers’ Solidarity.

From coast to coast, tens of thousands celebrated in many cities across the country, including San Juan, Puerto Rico. Workers and allies united to fight back against increasing anti-immigration sentiment and policies that divide workers from each other at a time when we need to come together.
