abortion rights are workers' rights

Reproductive Rights = Worker Rights

URA-AFT supports reproductive choice and stands with people seeking access to abortion and related health care. Workers must have the right to make the profoundly personal choice of whether and when to bear children. The overturning of Roe vs. Wade is dangerous and directly impacts the right to privacy of our members. Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization court opinions put at risk privacy-enshrined rights to contraception, interracial marriage and same-sex marriage. 

We stand in solidarity in the fight for reproductive justice and join fellow unions calling on legislators to take immediate steps to codify the federal right to abortion. We call on our U.S. Senators to protect reproductive rights and due process of law by ending the Senate filibuster rule. This crucial action can help end minority rule in the United States and open the door to government of, by and for the people. 

As state and federal governments enact laws that attack working people, URA-AFT will continue to fight for the issues which impact our members and the communities in which we live.
