Today in Labor History

July 17, 1944
Two ammunition ships explode at Port Chicago, Calif., killing 322, including 202 African-Americans assigned by the Navy to handle explosives. It was the worst home-front disaster of World War II. The resulting refusal of 258 African-Americans to return to the dangerous work underpinned the trial and conviction of 50 of the men in what is called the Port Chicago Mutiny.

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.
