"Day of the Fallen"
“Texas does not have to be the state with the highest death rate nor with the highest rate of injuries in construction. The legislature can turn this around by adopting our legislative agenda for better safety and health for the workers who build Texas. That is why we are here today,” Worker’s Defense Project Executive Director Cristina Tsintzun said at a rally on February 25, 2015.
One thousand construction workers and supporters marched to the Texas State Capitol on a cold, blustery day in late February to call for stronger safety and health protections. The march was sponsored by the Workers Defense Project to dramatize the high number of deaths and injuries suffered by construction workers in Texas. The Austin American-Statesman did not cover it at all. Telemundo gave the march and the rally professional coverage.
Among them were Monserrat Garibay (Education Austin), Becky Moeller (President, Texas AFL-CIO), The Rag Blog‘s Glenn Scott (retired National Nurses United organizer) and Alice Embree (Texas State Employees Union).
According to Glenn Scott, President of the Austin Chapter of Texas Alliance for Retired Americans: "Austin Reports a Terrific Medicare Event", June 2015;
- We had a terrific event on Saturday. We have put Austin TARA on the Austin/Central Texas political and advocacy map! Over 147 people attended the event which means we met our goal of 150! In part due to Congressman Doggett's great reputation, we brought in many new faces. We went well beyond the TARA contact list for this event.
- We built stronger ties with labor groups through this event. At least 8 unions or CLC and Building trades council contributed $. One key to turnout was our list of over 30 endorsing organizations. Most of the endorsing organizations sent at least 1 or 2 and some brought as many as 8 to 10. Austin DSA got 10 members there and TSEU brought the most with at least 12 or more. Congressman Doggett's staff was another factor, - they did a letter to constituents and sent emails and did press for us in addition to our own efforts.
