Don't forget - next Monday, Feb. 15 is the big rally!

There’s still time to make plans for the Public Employee/Revenue Rally and Lobby Day on the Presidents’ Day Holiday, Monday, Feb. 15. The rally will be at noon on the Capitol steps. But you can get a pre-rally briefing, lunch and lobbying appointments.

Register now.

And if you can’t make the whole day, come down for the rally on the Capitol steps at noon. You’ve heard a lot about Sarah Palin and the Tea Baggers who wrap themselves in Confederate flags and had a big convention in Tennessee this past weekend. Well, the Tea Baggers are scheduled on the Capitol steps right before our rally—so we need to show the world how wrong they are. That’s why it’s so important you come to Olympia next Monday.

As Federation President Carol Dotlich told 500 fired-up Policy Committee delegates Saturday in SeaTac:

“This is your test of time. This is the day you’re being called to action. This is the day you must perform like you never have before.”

“This is a classic case of why a union matters…,” Federation Executive Director Greg Devereux added.

“We’re in the fight of our life over these issues and we’re not going to take it the way they did it last year.”
