May Day in Madison: CUNA Picket & DSA Picnic

Mark your calendars for International Workers Day on Sunday, May 1st, because it’s going to be a busy day of building working class solidarity.

Sunday, May 1st, 2022 in Madison, WI Schedule: 

10AM-1PM: Informational Picket at CUNA Mutual Group 

CUNA Mutual Group Workers United (OPEIU Local 39) will be picketing their employer, CUNA Mutual Group.  These workers are fighting for their job security, healthcare benefits, fair compensation, retirement security, and remote work flexibility, which are in danger of being taken away from CUNA Mutual Group just months after they announced record-breaking profits.  

MADSA will be providing coffee and donuts.  Everyone is welcome to come through to show solidarity with these workers.  

Park at Garner Park on Rosa Road.  The picket will then occur at 5810 Mineral Point Road.  Here is the link to the Facebook event.  

1PM-3PM: Picnic Lunch at Garner Park

After the picket, bring a dish (if you are able) for a picnic lunch at Garner Park.  This will be an opportunity to hang out afterwards.  Garner Park is next to CUNA Mutual Group.  

4:30PM-8:30PM: May Day Picnic at Warner Park 

Finally, end the day by attending the MADSA May Day Picnic at Warner Park Shelter.  Food will be provided but a donations jar will be left out to cover the cost of the picnic.  Please fill out this form if you plan on coming to the May Day Picnic.  Alcohol will not be provided but guests are welcome to bring their own as long as they are not in glass.

The May Day Picnic is at Warner Park Shelter, 2930 N Sherman Ave.  Here is a link to the Facebook event.  

Come to all three or show up for whatever you are able to!
