Local worker centers, unions and elected officials are gathering to denounce the recent mailing of so called " no match " letters as a direct attack on working families. The group will provide information in the recent chaos experienced by both workers and employers in the current "no match" crisis, including informing workers of their rights and alerting employers on proper action to take or not take.
While there has been widespread fear created by the announced immigration raids that did not materialize, "silent workplace raids" have been devastating workers through the sending of "no match" letters.

No-Match letters are an educational communication from the Social Security Administration SSA to employers stating that a worker's personal information like her name or Social Security number does not match the agency's records.

Any of those actions could, in fact, violate State or Federal law and subject you to legal consequences.

A judge shot that notion down in January, saying the FOP had no one to blame but itself for being left on the sidelines.

Murray then asked all the FOP members in the gallery to stand. He reiterated that they think Emanuel has turned his back on them and announced: "We are leaving, thank you.
