Berkshires Union Members Vow to Strike If Trump Interferes In Election
A labor group with members in Berkshire County is pledging to take nonviolent action to defend the democratic process, “if Donald Trump and his GOP enablers attempt to obstruct, subvert, sabotage, overturn or reject a fair and complete count of presidential ballots.”
In a unanimous vote Monday, the Western Massachusetts Labor Federation approved a resolution calling for a general strike, should it be necessary.
Lydia Wood, a field organizer for the federation, said in an interview Tuesday that while details are still being worked out, members of 30 different unions are prepared to use a general strike to protest any effort by the current administration to hold on to power despite evidence that his rival, Joe Biden, has won the presidential election.
