Confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh have started.

Call your senator now and urge them to reject Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

The labor movement’s momentum on working people’s rights is under attack. And with the start of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination hearings, working people are stepping up to stop Kavanaugh from being confirmed.

Make a call now to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

Working people demand a Supreme Court committed to upholding the rights working families are working so hard to protect. Brett Kavanaugh’s record depicts a justice who will habitually rule against working people and in favor of greedy corporations.

The Senate should oppose Kavanaugh and demand a nominee who will protect the rights of working people—from safe, dignified working conditions to collective bargaining for better benefits, including access to a full range of health care—instead of further tilting the economic playing field.

It’s up to each of us to make sure our legislators hear from workers—loud and clear—right now. Call your senator now to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation as Supreme Court justice.

In Solidarity,


 The above was a special statement sent out this morning by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.
