Here's why.  Last fall the Central Committee actively supported county ballot Question B to take away a key bargaining right for Montgomery County public safety employees, despite urging by organized labor that it remain neutral or oppose the affront to first responders. It was only the latest anti-worker, anti-union action by the Committee. Its fundraiser Saturday provides an important opportunity to send a clear message of solidarity in support of working families. Our coalition urges your participation and respectfully requests that no one cross the picket line or otherwise patronize the event.

Progressive Maryland, like its labor and community allies, supports the progressive positions and efforts of Democratic legislators, candidates and groups when they serve to further and protect the interests of working families. But as a nonpartisan grassroots advocacy organization, it is equally important that we confront, expose and oppose them when they do otherwise.
