Mission Statement

Jobs with Justice is a coalition of labor, religion, student, and community activists and organizations committed to protecting the basic human rights of men and women. Jobs with Justice goals are to organize community support for workers treated unjustly and/or illegally in the workplace and to address the root causes of poverty while working for an economic base that benefits the entire community. Jobs with Justice believes that the fate of labor unions and the communities in which their members live are tightly bound together. The more organized the greater St. Louis area and its workforce, the more powerful the pressure that can be brought to bear on behalf of progressive community and labor issues. Jobs with Justice is action oriented. During each year, members and organizations take the Jobs with Justice pledge to "be there" at least five times for someone else's fight as well as their own. That means joining picket lines, attending rallies, and participating in other actions or demonstrations for economic and social justice. Jobs with Justice will not accept the economic status quo. Whether fighting for the right to organize, fair trade, welfare justice or universal health care, corporations can be counted on to oppose any reform that even appears to threaten profits. Jobs with Justice will challenge corporations which participate in eroding our rights and living standards. Jobs with Justice believes in equality for all on and off the job. Towards that end, Jobs with Justice is committed to fighting against racism, sexism, classism and other forms of discrimination and for affirmative action, cultural diversity and a more just society for all.
