"People don't realize that by not belonging to the union, the only right they have on the job is the right to die. People don't understand that the collective bargaining agreements and the right to organize protects them," said Ray Stever, President of the New Jersey Industrial Union Council. Speaking at the We Are One rally in Newark, New Jersey, Stever connected the dots between the old Congress of Industrial Organizations, the 29 mine workers at Massey Energy's Upper Big Branch mine, killed one year ago, and the current attacks on public workers in New Jersey and beyond.
