    June 23, 2022 | WAGES | CEOs at America’s biggest low-wage employers now take home, on average, 670 times what their typical workers make. But we don’t just get unfairness when a boss can grab more in a year than a worker could make in over six centuries. We get bungling and inefficient businesses. Management science has been clear on this point for generations, ever since the days of the late Peter Drucker. Management theorists credit Drucker, a refugee from Nazism in the 1930s, for laying down “the foundations of management as a scientific discipline.” Drucker’s classic 1946 study of General Motors established him as the nation’s foremost authority on corporate effectiveness.

    June 23, 2022 | U.S. LABOR LAW | Former Tesla Inc. employees have filed a lawsuit against the U.S. electric car company alleging its decision to carry out a "mass layoff" violated federal law as the company did not provide advance notice of the job cuts. The lawsuit was filed by two workers who said they were terminated from Tesla's gigafactory plant in Sparks, Nevada, in June. According to the suit, more than 500 employees were terminated at the Nevada factory. The workers allege the company failed to adhere to federal laws on mass layoffs that require a 60-day notification period under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, according to the lawsuit. An attorney representing the workers told Reuters she finds it very concerning that the richest man in the world considers it "trivial" that his company is blatantly violating federal labor… Reuters


        Did You Know?

        Since 1910, the Teamster logo has consisted of
        two horses' heads, representing the
        complementary forces of strength inherent in
        the Teamster organization. A well-known
        emblem, most people recognize it but are
        unsure of the story behind it. The horses' names
        are Thunder and Lightning; Thunder is male
        and Lightning is female.

        Members = Power

        Local 570 members and their representatives
        negotiate wages, benefits, and job security,
        resolve grievances and secure health and
        safety protections during a pandemic
        because, as a union, they have a seat at the
        table with their employers.
