Worker Rights Board of Eastern Maine Unveiled 

In recognition for Martin Luther King’s work for the dignity of all people, including workers, a local committee unveiled its organization Monday morning.Clergy, elected officials and other community leaders gathered in Brewer to introduce folkd to the Worker Rights Board of Easter Maine.The board began forming in 2009 with the goal of providing a “community forum to legitimize workers’ voices and help remedy workplace injustices”.” The union organization has really fallen and has really been a struggle. The labor law that is still being debated in Washington was never passed to make it easier for labor to organize so there’s a great many workers out there that are suffering injustice in their workplace,” said Julie Grab, a committee member. Members say 15 other states have worker rights boards.The group will hold monthly meetings at the Solidarity Center, 20 Ivers Street in Brewer.
