Healing With CAARE Inc.
214 Broadway St, Durham, North Carolina 27701

A Durham Workers Rights Commission is in formation
and we need to hear from you!

A New Durham City Council and Mayor are in office and
the time for workers’ change is now!

We must organize and fight-back together — workers in all sectors — fast food workers, city/state workers, domestic workers, restaurant and hospitality workers, manufacturing workers, teachers, adjunct professors, laundry workers, bus drivers and more to build a better Durham. Durham is a #UnionTown

Speak-out for:
Better Wages — $15/hr. minimum for all
Safety on the job
End sexual harrasment & discrimination on the job
More job security and union rights
Any other issues that are important to you!

The purpose of the Workers Rights Commission is to:
1. Establish standards and expectations for all employers such as a Workers Bill of Rights.
2. Have broad community and labor participation so that decisions made by the commission are enforced by the independent power of the people and workers.
3. Empower workers to organize into unions or other workplace organizations.
4. Have a formal relationship with the City of Durham so as decisions made by the commission are followed up on by the City Manager, Mayor’s Office and City Council.

This meeting will allow workers to help shape the direction and priorities of a Workers Rights Commission, that we seek to create together.

Meeting sponsored by Durham City Workers Union, UE local 150; Raise Up for $15; the National Domestic
Workers Alliance, We Dream in Black; and the NC AFL-CIO.
