Today in Labor History

August 16, 1937
Congress passes the National Apprenticeship Act, establishing a national advisory committee to research and draft regulations establishing minimum standards for apprenticeship programs. It was later amended to permit the Labor Dept. to issue regulations protecting the health, safety and general welfare of apprentices, and to encourage the use of contracts in their hiring and employment.

What Was It Like the Last Time UPS Went On Strike? And What’s Different Today?
Posted On: Jun 07, 2018
June 7, 2018 | ECONOMY | Two decades ago, 187,000 employees at UPS walked off the job for 16 days. As of Wednesday, the company’s union workers, now numbering 260,000, are threatening to do so again. There’s plenty of time for the two sides to work out a deal. UPS employees can’t go on strike until their current labor contract ends on July 31. But the scars of the labor action 21 years ago are still fresh enough that businesses are paying close attention to the talks…the mere threat of another widespread UPS strike is causing agitation in boardrooms across the country… Fortune
