Organizers to Announce March and Rally Plans for May Day 2014
Community activists, union members, immigrant rights groups and many others will gather on the south side of Union Square on 14th St. Wednesday, April 23 at 12noon to announce plans for the annual May Day March at Union Square.
Organizers will provide details on the march route from Union Square to 26 Federal Plaza which will highlight important issues for workers such as fast food restaurants, gentrification and detention centers.
Thousands are expected to gather at Union Square as has occurred since 2006. This year’s main demands are: raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, legalization not deportations or detentions, and immediate contracts with full retro pay for all workers.
May Day 2014 will gather at Union Square on May 1st at 12noon and will march off at 530pm. All permits have been applied for and approved.
