Today in Labor History

Dec. 13, 1924
Samuel Gompers died at the age of 74. Gompers served as president of the American Federation of Labor from 1886 to 1894 and from 1895 to his death. What does labor want? Gompers said, “We want more schoolhouses and less jails; more books and less arsenals; more learning and less vice; more constant work and less crime; more leisure and less greed; more justice and less revenge; in fact more of the opportunities to cultivate our better natures, to make manhood more noble, womanhood more beautiful and childhood more happy and bright.”

The agreement provides substantial wage increases, enrollment in the Teamsters 570 Health Insurance Plan at no cost to members, increases in paid time off, on-call provisions, and tool, boot, and uniform allowances. Carroll provides HVAC installation and repair services throughout the Baltimore area. Petro and Carroll are both owned by Star Gas.

A new three-year contract was ratified at Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, providing annual wage increases, maintenance of healthcare benefits with a new opt-out provision, an increase in the employer contribution to the 401(k), and an additional holiday.

Members at Terminal Corporation approved in June a new contract with a four-year term. The agreement provides wage and shift differential increases; maintenance to Health and Welfare; an increase in the life insurance benefit, the company pension and 401(k) contribution.

Negotiations continue for a first contract for American Red Cross blood collectors (phlebotomists). Meetings are scheduled for the last week in July.
