Today in Labor History

August 15, 2008
Eight automotive department employees at a Walmart near Ottawa won an arbitrator-imposed contract after voting for UFCW representation, becoming the giant retailer's only location in North America with a collective bargaining agreement. Two months later the company closed the department. Three years earlier Walmart had closed an entire store on the same day the government announced an arbitrator would impose a contract agreement there.

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.
