Today in Labor History

Oct. 16, 1859
Pres. Woodrow Wilson signs the Clayton Antitrust Act ? often referred to as "Labor?s Magna Carta" ? establishing that unions are not "conspiracies" under the law. It for the first time freed unions to strike, picket and boycott employers. In the years that followed, however, numerous state measures and negative court interpretations weakened the law .

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.
