Striking Detroit Water Employee Workers



The Executive Board of AFSCME Local 207 has voted not to end the strike until there is an agreement from DWSD management that there will be amnesty for all of the 34 fired workers, and that there will be no retaliation against any other workers or union officers. The power of our strike is based on the support of Detroit’s black community and the surrounding communities of Michigan, including unions and churches, and is being expressed more and more each day. The power of our strike cannot be measured by numbers alone, but in what it represents to hundreds of thousands of people who understand that the striking members are heroes. Our strike’s power is based on the potential of our fight to expand and become more militant, and change the balance of power between the people and the powers-that-be. Unless our members are all returned to work, there is no deal, and the strike is still on. For More information contact Attorney Shanta Driver 313-407-4865
