Today in Labor History

Oct. 16, 1859
Pres. Woodrow Wilson signs the Clayton Antitrust Act ? often referred to as "Labor?s Magna Carta" ? establishing that unions are not "conspiracies" under the law.

‘When Women Have a Union, You Don’t Have to Walk in Alone’
Posted On: Jan 22, 2018
Jan. 22, 2018 | #MeToo | […] the human resources department of your employer can go from being, frankly, a dangerous place for most women to walk into if they have a sexual harassment claim against their employer, because human resource departments in fact are there to defend the employer, and make sure that their bosses aren’t being sued. Except for when you have a union. Because, when women have a union, and if the issue is abuse of some kind on the continuum of sexual harassment, whether that’s—by the way—disparate pay going on in the workplace, or whether its actual sexual harassment, you don’t have to walk in alone. You, typically, are advised never to walk in alone… You walk in not alone, you walk in with a witness, you walk in with a strategy, you walk in with the power to actually do something about it, because it comes from a union-negotiated collective agreement.
