Organized labor groups will gather Monday to condemn the contractor working for American Sewer Service who displayed the KKK logo on 25th and Wells on Friday while working on a project for the City of Milwaukee.

No worker can be both a unionist and a fascist, white supremacists are the enemy of organized labor and the entire multinational working class. The KKK is a white supremacist terrorist group responsible for killing African Americans, LBGTQ people, trade unionists, and others.

Unions stand for economic and social justice, and we condemn and actively fight against white supremacy and fascism in the workplace and society.

We call on the City of Milwaukee to immediately end all contracts with American Sewer Service. Furthermore, we call on the City of Milwaukee to employ union represented city employees at prevailing wage. Finally, we call on union brothers and sisters to build the trade union movement to smash bigotry, fascism, and economic and racial oppression.

Sponsored by the Young Workers Committee of the Milwaukee Area Labor Council, AFL-CIO, Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, The Milwaukee Dr. Martin Luther King Justice Coalition.
