Labor and Justice

The 21st General Synod reaffirms the heritage of the United Church of Christ as an advocate for democratic, participatory, and inclusive economic policies in both public and private sectors including…the responsibility of workers to organize unions for collective bargaining with employers regarding wages, benefits, and working conditions; and to participate in efforts further to democratize, reform and expand the labor movement domestically and abroad. 

—Resolution Affirming Democratic Principles in an Emerging Global Economy, 1997

We can have concentrated wealth in the hands of a few or we can have democracy.  But we cannot have both.

—Supreme Court Justice, Louis Brandeis
