    June 2, 2023 | LEGAL | The following is a press release jointly issued today by Teamsters Local 174, MLK Labor and the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO: “[…] At the end of the day, nothing in this decision will stop workers from exercising their federally protected rights to strike when necessary to achieve better wages, benefits, and working conditions. In this particular case, Glacier has found a way to prolong its meritless lawsuit by artfully pleading allegations the Court today found sufficient to get past a motion to dismiss.” … Driver Mark Hislop was among those whose 2017 strike triggered the initial lawsuit that led to this decision. Hislop had this to say about the ruling: “Six years ago, this company forced us out on strike by refusing to bargain in good faith, and they’ve been coming after us in court ever since. As far as I’m concerned, today’s decision changes nothing for us Teamsters, and it will not stop us from fighting as hard as we can for strong contracts.” The Stand
    June 2, 2023 | ESSAY | State legislators in Minnesota [recently] passed a package of pro-labor measures that instantly makes the state the envy of workers everywhere. The new laws include paid sick days for everyone, banning noncompete agreements, a crackdown on wage theft, and a wage board to set pay in the nursing home industry. All a big deal. But let’s talk briefly about one in particular: A ban on captive audience meetings. As you know if you have ever hung around union people who are in the process of getting extremely mad, “captive audience meetings” are when the boss calls a mandatory meeting for employees, and then proceeds to lie to them about how bad unions are. … If you think about it, it’s pretty wild that these meetings are legal in the first place. What does your employer pay you for? They pay you for your work. They pay you to perform a set of tasks collectively known as “your job.” That’s it. It is highly unlikely that a legitimate part of your job is “being harangued about your boss’s extreme right-wing beliefs.” That’s what anti-union propaganda is, when you get right down to it. How Things Work
    May 31, 2023 | NLRB | Jaysin Saxton, the Starbucks worker who exposed for the U.S. Senate and the world to see that company CEO Howard Schultz lied about not busting unions, will get his job back. He’ll walk in the store door on June 7 to reclaim his post. Once there, he declared during a series of panels May 25 on organizing, the atmosphere in the store will be totally different, “and Starbucks isn’t ready for it.” “I can’t wait to get back.” Saxton played a key role in exposing Starbucks’s abuses and exploitation of its workers nationally. With one other worker, Saxton followed Schultz to the witness chair earlier this year before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee. There, he described in detail his mistreatment and ultimate firing from the Augusta store. Schultz, the Starbucks founder who had just stepped down as its CEO—but who’s still on the board and is the firm’s biggest stockholder—denied then under oath that his firm ever illegally fired anyone for advocating unionizing. Saxton point by point, then and at the CBTU, exposed that lie. Peoples World
    May 30, 2023 | LABOR HISTORY | After decades of decline, union organizing is surging again today, mainly in new industries, from coffee empires to online megastores. At the same time, teachers’ and nurses’ unions remain strong and the venerable guild for movie and TV writers went on strike earlier this week. Stephen Colbert, knowing his late-night show would soon go dark, said on Monday, “This nation owes so much to unions.” … Labor protests and strikes, decades ago, often led to violent confrontations between unionists and local or company police. It almost never happens today. This is partly due to lessons learned by both sides 86 years ago this month in Chicago, after police shot (mainly in the back) and killed 10 unionists and wounded 30 others in what has become known as The Memorial Day Massacre. No labor conflict has come close to this toll since. Raw Story
