Today in Labor History

Jan. 23, 1933
Led by metal finishers, 6,000 workers walked off the job over wage cuts at Briggs Manufacturing Company, sparking a strike wave of 15,000 auto body workers that paralyzed Detroit’s auto industry. With scabs trucked in and finished products trucked out under police escort, the company quickly resumed production. When the strike was called off on May 1, strikers were not rehired, but their collective action forced wage increases in the industry.

At Will vs. Just Cause
Updated On: Jan 31, 2014

In the State of Maryland, employees not covered by a union contract can be terminated for any reason, or for no reason at all.

However, employees covered by a union contract can only be terminated for "just cause" – simple words, but they mean a lot. It means that an employer can not arbitrarily terminate an employee.

In your union contract you will find information about the grievance and arbitration procedures that spell out what needs to be done when an employee believes they are being disciplined unfairly by an employer.
