Letter sent to the House concerning field offices:

Dear Representative:

On December 5th, the Social Security Administration (SSA) announced that its network of 1250 field offices will no longer provide Social Security Number (SSN) printouts or benefit verification forms to the public. The change, which was scheduled to begin April 1, was delayed by the House and Senate Appropriations Committees because of serious concerns about the harsh impact of this plan on low-income and unemployed Americans, as well as those without computers, printers or computer expertise. It is now scheduled to begin on August 1. (more…)

TPP Rally

January 31st, 2014 | Posted by admin in Events | Rally - (0 Comments)
Brothers and Sisters-
After 20 years, NAFTA is  one of the biggest job and environment killers the US has ever seen. And  the same big corporations are at it again! The Trans-Pacific  Partnership Free Trade Agreement (TPP) is set to become the largest  so-called free trade agreement in the world, yet it has been negotiated  behind closed doors by corporate lobbyists and government bureaucrats.  That’s not democracy! Amazingly, there are a few Democratic Members of  Congress who haven’t committed to opposing Fast Track, including Mike  Quigley. Join us as we demand to have a voice in trade policy and the  Congressman stand up for his constituents!
Saturday February 1st                    
11:30 AM Meet up at Jonquil Park @ Wrightwood and Sheffield near the DePaul Campus
March to Congressman Mike Quigley’s Office
3223 N Sheffield Avenue                    
12:00 PM Rally at Quigley’s Office
Join us to tell Congressman Quigley to do what is right!  Tweet him @RepMikeQuigley: Say No to the TPP!
Solidarity,
Susan Hurley, Executive Director of Chicago Jobs with Justice

Public employees and their unions are frequent scapegoats when elected officials seek to score political points or contract out government services. But despite what you may have read, there are many examples of productive labor-management relations in the public sector. A new report released by the Jobs With Justice Education Fund, Improving Government Through Labor-Management Collaboration and Employee Ingenuity, profiles how public employees and their unions are working collaboratively with management to improve the way government runs.
