Thursday, June 27th is the 1 year anniversary of the Janus decision, and we want to tell the world that we’re Sticking With Our Unions and we’re here to stay!
Join us on the 27th in posting a picture to Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram holding a sign that says “I’m #StickingWithMyUnion” or “I’m #StickingWithMyUnion because…” with your answer for why you personally are staying Union Strong! The header photo is an example. We want to highlight that union membership is increasing for many locals and unions despite the Janus decision (link: https://www.governing.com/topics/workforce/gov-janus-impact-union-membership.html)
Our social media blast will be taking place from 12pm-2pm on the 27th in order to try to get the #StickingWithMyUnion hashtag trending on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, so try to make your posts within that time frame. If you can’t make it, don’t let it deter you from posting – we want everyone’s messages to get out!
In addition, a #StickingWithMyUnion Facebook photo frame will be live starting on Wednesday, June 26th at 12pm. Please add it to your profile photo to show your support and spread the message! You don’t need to do it within the 12-2pm time frame – it’s just an extra push for awareness and solidarity.
Here are some social media blurbs you can use:
