Today in Labor History
Aug 26, 1970: The Women’s Strike for Equality is staged in cities across the U.S., marking the 50th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, under which women won the right to vote. A key focus of the strike—in fact, more accurately a series of marches and demonstrations—was equality in the workplace. An estimated 20,000 women participated, some carrying signs with the iconic slogan, “Don’t Iron While the Strike is Hot.” Another sign: “Hardhats for Soft Broads”.

May 22, 2013 | WAR ON WORKERS | In 2010, after his Illinois printing company was bought by a private equate firm, Marcus Hedger was illegally fired for his union activities as a shop steward for the Graphic Communications Conference of Teamsters. Last September, the full National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) — two Democrats and one Republican at the time — unanimously ruled he should be rehired with back pay. What happened? Nothing, except to Marcus. The company appealed the ruling in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, and it has been able to avoid reinstating Marcus because his case is on hold over a radical challenge to NLRB board appointments. Marcus lost his home and is working at a job that pays one-third of what he was earning before. Continue reading here and then call your senators toll free at 1-888-264-6154 and tell them to confirm the NLRB nominations now.
