Action Alert: Call Within the Next Hour to Stop Anti-Worker Amendment

 A quick but vital action alert from our friends at "American Rights at Work," who desperately need your calls to stop a nasty anti-worker amendment from decimating the NLRB's budget:

Last Thursday, anti-worker members of the House of Representatives rammed through a bill that would leave employees with no protection when companies decide to unlawfully cut and run... all to protect a single business – the Boeing Corporation.

Now, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and other Senate Republicans are pushing the same extremist policy through an amendment to threaten the budget for the independent agency that protects workers’ rights, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

The committee vote on this budget and the dangerous amendment is scheduled for 3pm ET. We need workers' rights supporters in Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Montana, or Nebraska to make a quick call to their senators to ensure this rider doesn't pass.

One click over to their website leads to phone numbers and an easy response form. Don't delay if you can lend a hand.
