This will be our sixth caravan to join the picket line with members of United Steelworkers Local 13-243 in Beaumont. They have been locked out by Exxon in a labor dispute which has attracted national attention thanks to Exxon’s aggressive union-busting.
Houston DSA Membership has overwhelmingly approved a resolution in support of these locked-out workers. The union has been clear that they need one thing above all else– people to join them on the picket line. We must answer the call. Let us know your availability for December as we plan for this and future trips by completing this form: https://bit.ly/usw-dec
We’ll meet at Target- Sawyer Heights (2580 Shearn St.) at 8:30 Saturday morning to consolidate before making the drive to Beaumont. We will coordinate drivers and consolidate passengers before making the drive to Beaumont. Bring your family, bring your friends, bring everyone! No experience required, everyone is welcome.
