Some members of white-collar union District Council 47 are fed-up with union leadership and plan to protest in front of union headquarters everyday starting Thursday afternoon.
Workers are miffed that they have not had a contract since it expired in 2009 and they’re demanding more action from their union. Contract talks between the city and the union have been scarce.
“We want the union to fight harder for us,” said Judith Jones, 43, a contract conformance manager with the Department of Human Services, who is organizing the rally on Walnut Street near 16th.
Cathy Scott, president of AFSCME DC 47 did not return calls for comment today.
