Today in Labor History

July 7, 1903
The March of the Mill Children, the three-week trek from Philadelphia to President Roosevelt’s home on Long Island by striking child and adult textile workers, was launched by Mary Harris “Mother” Jones. The march turned public attention on the scourge of child labor and energized efforts to end it by law.

New Contract at Veolia
Updated On: Mar 03, 2011

   "This agreement is good for our workers and good for transit riders. It provides fair wage increases over a 4-year contract term and avoids disruption in transit service," said Sean Cedenio, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 570. "The agreement also relieves covered employees of a portion of their health insurance cost burden."

   "Additionally, the Union and the Company worked together to implement enhanced safety standards and improvements to its attendance policy. I don't think our success in obtaining this contract would have been possible if the workers were not highly mobilized to get fair compensation for the services they provide. I want to thank the public for their very important role in our success. Their support was critical for us. At one point, a mass of supportive emails from concerned riders shut down the company's email system.

   "The ratification of the new contract concludes a long, protracted battle to get what these workers deserved. It will help our people plan for a better future for themselves and their families while they continue to provide safe and on-time service to the commuting public."
