Following the meeting, CTUL members joined hundreds of other workers for a march on U.S. Bank, calling out the corporation for standing in the way of workers’ rights by opposing the Minneapolis Working Families Agenda. Workers were joined by environmental activists from MN350 and other groups, calling out U.S. Bank for its role in financing environmental destruction.
