Solidarity Plate

We are currently working with the Massachusetts R.M.V. to produce Collective Bargaining Solidarity license plates. This is a great way to show your support for organized labor in Massachusetts, while promoting its importance. Someone once told us that “strength in numbers only works when those who are counted show they are willing to act.” This is why the proceeds from this project will be used to assist local unions in Massachusetts with organizing ( to bring us more work opportunities), and educating all workers on how they can take an active role to preserve collective bargaining. You can print an application HERE
