Today in Labor History

Nov. 17, 1916
To the huge relief of Post Office Department employees, the service sets a limit of 200 pounds a day to be shipped by any one customer. Builders were finding it cheaper to send supplies via post than via wagon freight. In one instance, 80,000 bricks for a new bank were shipped parcel post from Salt Lake City to Vernal, Utah, 170 miles away. The new directive also barred the shipment of humans: a child involved in a couple’s custody fight was shipped—for 17¢—from Stillwell to South Bend, Ind., in a crate labeled “live baby” .

The Union Difference
Updated On: Jan 31, 2014

   Unions like Teamsters 570 play a great role in balancing the scales for working people. It is a documented and statistical fact that Corporate America has benefited mightly from our struggling economy, while income inequities continue to grow for working Americans.

   That's why more and more workers are joining unions. The Labor Movement has fought hard to secure many benefits that are now enjoyed by American workers (union and non-union alike). They include, but are not limited to:

  • The 40-hour work week
  • The 8-hour work day
  • Higher wages
  • Employer-paid health insurance
  • Retirement plans, including 401(k) 
  • Sick leave
  • Paid vacations and holidays
  • Grievance procedures
  • Safety and health protections

   There are just some things you can't put a price tag on: Dignity, respect, a voice on the job, better working conditions, and better lives for working families.
