Today in Labor History

Dec. 11, 2012
Michigan becomes the 24th state to adopt right-to-work legislation. The Republican-dominated state Senate introduced two measures—one covering private workers, the other covering public workers—by surprise five days earlier and immediately voted their passage; the Republican House approved them five days later(the fastest it legally could) and the Republican governor immediately signed both bills.

Posted On: Dec 12, 2014

Dec. 12, 2014 | The Teamster Union is opposed to the Omnibus Spending Bill. It keeps the governement open on the backs of hardworking Americans and retirees.

The legislation would:

  • Threaten the retirement security of thousands of retirees.
  • Increases the number of hours that truck drivers can spend on the road every week.
  • Dismantle key Wall Street Reform by allowing big banks to make risky derivatives trading bets using taxpayer-insured funds.
  • Let every wealthy person put over one and a half million more dollars into politics so we will continue to see more legislation that threatens pensions and increases the hours Teamsters have to work.

Protect your job, your family and your pension.

Call Congress NOW at 888.979.9806 to be connected to your senator.
